Report released on greenhouse gas emissions

Wind is an effective way for Victoria to cut greenhouse gas emissions associated with electricity generation. An independent study by McLennan Magasanik Associates quantifies how much fossil fuel generation is displaced by Victorian wind farms. This study has been recently updated and an independent review of the work has been completed by the University of New South Wales.
