Accelerating this transition could deliver more than half a billion dollars for the construction industry over the next decade, while creating 7,000 jobs and saving Australians $600 million on their energy bills.

The IFM Investors’ FY 2019 Australian Infrastructure Carbon Footprint Summary report, released today, shows a reduction across the firms Australian Infrastructure portfolio of 7.9% in the 2018/19 financial year.

Solar windows tinted to the same degree as current glazed commercial windows would generate about 140 watts of electricity per square metre. The first application is likely to be in multistorey buildings.

An estimated 63 per cent of survey respondents said the government is not doing enough to lower carbon emissions to address climate change.

The $71 million project will see the current 100 MW / 129 MWh battery expanded to demonstrate the ability for grid-scale batteries to provide inertia services and fast frequency responses to the grid.

Australia's first proposed offshore wind farm would use 250 turbines between 10 and 25kms off the Gippsland coast to generate up to 20 per cent of Victoria's electricity.

Renewable electricity will power all City-owned properties from July 1, 2020, including pools, libraries, playing fields, depots and council buildings – including the historic Sydney Town Hall.
