Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne has announced it will soon cover 100% of its electricity needs from renewable energy, slashing approximately 30,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.
The Australian university has signed a contract with Infigen Energy to procure 100% renewable electricity from the Cherry Tree Wind Farm, which is located near the town of Seymour in Victoria’s Goulburn Valley.
It says this will drastically reduce Swinburne’s carbon footprint as emissions from its electricity represent more than 70% of its total emissions.
