The Clean Energy Council commissioned independent consultants SKM to produce a national and state-based snapshot on wind farm investment, jobs and carbon abatement.

SKM looked at existing wind farm financial data and interviewed four
companies with experience in numerous wind farm projects. The report presents a breakdown of investment during the construction and operations phases of a major wind farm, collated from actual data provided by developers, contractors, advisers and consultants.

The publication includes two main sections:

  1. Economic benefits of wind in Australia
  2. Benefits of wind farms in regional communities
