City of Adelaide Powers Operations with 100% Renewable Energy

July 7, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


Starting this week, South Australia’s capital city Adelaide said that its operations are relying on 100% renewable energy. The city expects this transition to reduce emissions by approximately half and lower electricity costs.

Adelaide signed a power purchase agreement with Flow Power to buy electricity from multiple renewable generation projects. The deal means that all of the city’s operations, which include the aquatic center, parks, depots, and buildings like the Adelaide Town Hall, are powered by a mix of wind and solar.
