RM (Renewables Map) has been running since 2008, Figures are based on 13th February 2017:
RM lists 715 live projects of which 550 are over 1MW (Decc record 594. only those over 1MW are listed)
RM cross references to 100% of DECC projects. So why the different numbers?
RM combines initial project, any extensions even where they are given distinct names, also projects that are initially refused. An example would be Withernwick. RM shows simply "Withernwick" DECC will show 3 projects: The initial withdrawn project, the initial built project and the extension.
The same cross referencing applies to OFGEM data. 100% of OFGEM wind projects over 1MW are cross refernced to an RM project.
RM is now adding wind projects from 0.5MW upwards.
All active Wind farms show: Exact project and turbine Latitude, Longitude and Elevation. Make and Model of turbines, hub height, turbine and overall capacity, cross reference and display of DECC and OFGEM data including REGO / RO payments and statements.
RM is the ONLY resource that has just about all wind turbines by make and model for projects over 1MW
11,776 Turbines listed of which 6,870 are live and of them 6,794 have the make and model identified. that is 99%
RM currently lists almost 989 live solar farms (DECC 929)
Now adding solar farms from 0.5MW upwards
Because of the way that RM lists one project site covering multiple "projects" a like for like comparison would show significant ly more solar projects associated with RM. See my comments about Wind Farms above. eg RM shows BrookHall as a single project, DECC will show the initial proposal and the resubmission. (both these are listed on the RM project page.
OFGEM: In an extreme case, Drayton solar farm has multiple Ofgem projects linked to it. The overall Drayton manor Farm project is 50MW, this is then reported on the OFGEM site as multiple 5MW projects.
All active solar farms show: Exact project / field Latitude, Longitude and Elevation, overall capacity, cross reference and display of DECC and OFGEM data including REGO / RO payments and statements.
Csv output allows for dowloads of all RM data based on your requirements. The data can be downloaded based on:
Renewables Map data cross referenced to DECC and OFGEM data, see CSV RM
DECC data cross referenced to RM and OFGEM data, see: CVS DECC
OFGEM data cross refernced to RM and DECC data, see: CSV OFGEM
Wind Turbine Data, essentially ALL (99%) of live wind turbines on Wind farms over 1MW plus additional proposed, agreed and cancelled turbines up to almost 12,000 turbines see: CSV Wind Turbines

The 1st years fees are:
£100 for unrestricted browsing access to Wind, the same for Solar and £60 for waste.
Or £500 each for the above, £300 for waste which will include full access to csv downloads.
Then £500 for the csv downloads for Wind turbine locations (over 11,000 turbine locations) .
