                    Melbourne Renewable Energy Project

                    The City of Melbourne, together with other local governments, cultural and educational institutions, and private-sector corporations has launched a competitive tender to purchase large volumes of renewable energy through a group purchasing model.

                    Our group wants to purchase 110 GWh worth of energy from new large scale renewable energy facilities. This amount of renewable energy will save up to 138,600 tonnes of CO2 each year which is the equivalent of planting more than 160,000 new trees and is enough energy to power 28,475 Melbourne households.

                    Through a group tender process, we are currently seeking proposals from the market to deliver renewable energy at an attractive price for a ten year term. The proposals will also need to demonstrate a range of community and economic benefits.
