We’re committed to a climate-positive future. Our SA campuses and facilities are powered with 100% green renewable energy, achieving net-zero emissions from electricity.
Our five-year deal with ENGIE guarantees the supply of electricity from one of the state’s largest renewable energy projects, the Willogoleche Wind Farm in South Australia’s mid-north.

The supply complements our existing solar carpark and rooftop systems – at Bedford Park, we have 7647 solar panels charging a 2.2 MW system that generates 20% of electricity needs at the campus.
In 2020, we installed four solar canopies – innovative stand-alone systems used for shelter and device recharging. The canopies draw energy from dual-sided solar panels that form the roof structure and charge built-in batteries stored in the seating. They’re a great example of Living Labs, providing a practical demonstration of how solar energy and storage can be integrated into real-world learning opportunities.
We know there are still challenges to address in reducing our emissions – electricity and gas used for lighting and building air-conditioning, and fuel used to transport staff and students via airplane, bus and car – but we’re charging ahead, with more initiatives to come.
There are plenty of opportunities for our Flinders community to be involved in sustainability on campus.
