Renewable Energy Data 2009 Released

New REF Micro-generation data reveals Small Hydro as a Star Performer

REF is today releasing the 9th issue of its Renewable Energy Data files, which were previewed at an invitation-only launch event on the 25 November 2009.

The Renewable Energy Foundation published the first issue of its Renewable Energy Data files (the RED Files) in December 2006. This, the 9th issue, supersedes all previous versions, and adds recent generation data bringing the dataset up to March 2009.

Previous issues have given performance data for all 900 macro-generators subsidized under the Renewables Obligation. This publication adds all micro-generators, giving a total of 3,600 installations. The files have been generated for REF by Oswald Consultancy Ltd.

The data files are accompanied by a presentation, given at the launch event, discussing all technologies, and written by Renewable Energy Foundation itself.
