Feature: Annual Graphs for 2011 & 2010

graph graph

graph graph

These charts compare wind power supply with total demand for power across the NEM regions (NSW, Qld, SA, Tas and Vic) for the calendar years 2010 (bottom) and 2011 (top).

The chart to the left shows supply in proportion to total installed capacity (i.e. capacity factor), which allows one to gauge the 'shape' of supply compared to that of demand. The chart to the right shows supply on the same scale as demand.

The data for these graphs are 12-hour averages. A 7-day moving average is overlaid which smooths daily and weekly cycles (mainly applicable to demand) somewhat, and allows one to view patterns more related to weather and seasonal factors.
