Bioenergy generation in Victoria
The amount of renewable energy actually generated in Victoria varies from year to year and ranges between 2 and 4%.
A map and list of renewable energy generators, which includes bioenergy can be found on the Department of Environment, Water Heritage and Arts website. The DEHWA website also includes a link to an Excel file listing operating renewable energy generators in Victoria.
Sustainability Victoria produced a map and some information on Victorian biomass generators and their generating capacity. A link to Victorian bioenergy cogeneration and power only generators can be found at the following website but note it is has not been updated since 2005: http://www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/www/html/2101-operating-biomass-generators-in-victoria.asp
The slide, http://bioenergyvictoria.net.au/files/documents/Generated_and_capacity_of_bioenergy_in_Vic_2009.doc shows how bioenergy 'pulls' it's weight against the other renewables in Victoria. The installed capacity of bioenergy in 2009 represented only approximately 9 per cent of total renewable electricity capacity. However, the actual generated renewable electiricty derived from bioenergy that year was in the order of 25%. Of particular note is the drop in hydro power that year - 2009 being at the peak of an drought period.
