What is GreenPower?
GreenPower independently audits participating providers to make sure the right amount of renewable energy is fed into the grid. Melbourne Airport is an approved GreenPower Provider. This means that on-site businesses, partners and retailers can choose Melbourne Airport GreenPower as their electricity supplier and GreenPower Provider.
GreenPower is a government-managed program that makes sure that businesses who buy GreenPower are supporting greater renewable energy generation in Australia.
What is Melbourne Airport's GreenPower Network?
We are Australia's first and only airport to become a GreenPower approved Provider.
Melbourne Airport's GreenPower Network is a way that we can "grow" our own energy on-site using huge solar farms then on-sell that power to retailers, tenants and partners. The energy we supply is cleaner, competitively priced, renewable and is fully accredited.
How are we empowered by homegrown energy?
Our solar farm opened in 2021 and marked a substantial step towards a greener future for Melbourne Airport. The first of its kind in Australia, the 16-hectare, 14-megawatt site is home to an estimated 30,000 solar panels.
The completion of the second North Airfield Solar Farm in late 2024 represents an even greater leap towards our 2025 Scope 1 and Scope 2 Net Zero Target, adding a further 20,000 panels.
Remarkably, the combined solar energy generated by both will be enough to power all four airport terminals. As we set the standard for airport sustainability all over the world, we invite our wider airport community to join us in being proudly powered by homegrown energy.
From large-scale, site-wide operations to our independent terminal retailers, it's our mission to be proudly powered by homegrown energy.
Why is homegrown energy good?
Renewable energy is just one way Melbourne Airport undertakes our business in an environmentally sustainable manner. Our aim is to achieve net zero for Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions by 2025.
Melbourne Airport's GreenPower Network also helps the tenants, retailers and partners who use our energy to conduct their business more sustainably - which is good for all of us.
