ENGIE x Flinders University

Flinders University transition to 100% renewable energy

An Innovative Supply Agreement

ENGIE has partnered with Flinders University to power all of its South Australian campuses and facilities with 100% renewable energy sources.

The five-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), delivered through the company’s retail arm Simply Energy, guarantees the supply of electricity from the ENGIE Willogoleche Wind Farm in South Australia’s mid-north for the Bedford Park, Tonsley and regional SA campuses.

100% renewable energy

Flinders University will power all of its South Australian campuses and facilities with 100% renewable energy sources from 2021 through an innovative new electricity supply agreement with ENGIE.

On the path to sustainability

The deal with ENGIE forms part of a range of bold renewable energy initiatives set out in Flinders University’s 2025 Sustainability Plan.

Reducing carbon footprint

92,000 MWh of electricity delivered over 5 years – reducing the university’s carbon footprint by 40 megatonnes.

Supplied by Willogoleche

Partnership guarantees the supply of electricity from one of the state’s largest renewable energy projects, the 119MW Willogoleche Wind Farm in South Australia’s mid-north.

"...We went with ENGIE is because they have significant activity here in South Australia, which helps the local economy. They are also very experimental with R&D, they are interested in doing some things with us to keep pushing the envelope in terms of sustainability and help develop working models for others. At the same time, they were very competitive on price."

Mark Gregory - Vice President, Corporate Services (COO)

Next steps in the Path to Net Zero

A Memorandum of Understanding between Flinders University and ENGIE Australia & New Zealand will also explore options for future collaboration.

Specific projects under consideration between the two parties are a new solar carpark to bolster direct energy generation and potential battery storage systems as part of a Virtual Power Plant on campus.

The two parties are also exploring specific energy efficiency opportunities at the Bedford campus including an innovative District Heating and Cooling System.
