Macquarie University in Sydney has committed to switching to a 100% renewable electricity source for its North Ryde campus.
The move will see the university’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions cut by 92%, with the campus’ electricity being sourced from Snowy Hydropower plant from 1st July.
Macquarie has purchased an annual supply of 54MWh of clean energy from Red Energy, saving the equivalent of 8,500 households’ worth of carbon dioxide emissions every year and surpassing its original aim of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 40% by 2030.
