Melbourne powers uni campuses, chocolate bars and road surfaces with 100% renewables

Office blocks, shopping centres, university campuses, chocolate bars and road surfaces in Melbourne will soon be powered by 100% renewable energy.

This is part of a new power purchase agreement for businesses across the city, which was signed by Melbourne's local authority and the Australian energy provider Tango Energy to accelerate the green transition of the area.

It is expected to provide 14 shopping centres, nine office buildings, seven educational campuses and four manufacturing facilities, including a Mondelez chocolate factory, with 110GWh of renewable electricity for ten years.
