For a couple of reasons, I’ve updated/extended the trend of monthly aggregate statistics for wind farms across the NEM … now out till the end of August 2023.

A quick look at the new all-time record for wind production, NEMwide, on Friday evening 7th July 2023
It appears that the NEM-wide wind production record was broken again, and then again, over the weekend. A quick look at wind output for each region to see the contribution.
Looks like we hit a new record for NEM-wide wind production on Thursday evening 8th June 2023 … slightly increasing on the prior record from 10 months ago.
The ‘all time maximum wind production’ record has been increased again (actually twice) during this windy spell.
Saturday evening saw a new all-time record for aggregate wind farm production across the NEM.
An updated longer-range trend of monthly aggregate wind statistics (MAX, AVE and MIN per month) to 31st May 2022 … incorporating the new all-time record.
A short note about a ‘blowing a gale’ new maximum point for wind production across the NEM this morning (Tue 31st May 2022).
It’s 1st April 2022, and I have not checked these stats in NEMreview v7 for a while, so I thought I would have a quick look at how a number of the key stats are trending: Quick notes about statistics:…
The all-time record for ‘peak wind’ continues to climb, with a Sunday evening contribution pushing it higher again.
Saturday evening 25th July 2021 saw the instantaneous production from wind farms across the NEM surge past 6,000MW for the first time and set a new ‘all-time’ record that’s substantially higher than the previous record (set only a few days beforehand).
A quick look at monthly stats shows that, whilst it’s been blowing a gale in SE Australia in recent days, it’s not yet set a new ‘peak instantaneous wind farm output’ record.
Last night, in addition to the dramas unfolding in the QLD region, we set a new record for coincident NEM-wide wind production – eclipsing the prior record from exactly 6 weeks ago.
David Osmond’s question on Twitter prompted me to have a look at large wind production overnight.
Yesterday (on Fri 21st Aug 2020) we saw a new record set for BOTH daily peak instantaneous output across all wind farms in the NEM, and also daily average output across all wind farms in the NEM.
