The Queensland energy system is transforming, with more renewable energy powering homes and businesses than ever before. Over the last decade, Queensland has built a thriving renewable energy sector. In 2015, there was around 7% renewable energy.
Since then, the amount of renewable energy produced in our state has tripled, with 1 in 3 households now generating electricity on their rooftop.
More than 21% of Queensland's electricity needs are now met with cleaner energy. This has built a multibillion-dollar renewable industry that powers more jobs across our state.
Powering towards 70% renewable energy by 2032
As the ‘Sunshine State’, Queensland has world-class solar and wind, the ideal geography for large-scale pumped hydro, and the critical minerals below the ground to make the renewable energy technologies needed to decarbonise.
The Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan outlines how Queensland’s energy system will transform to deliver clean, reliable and affordable energy to provide power for generations. It leverages Queensland’s natural advantages to:
- build a clean and competitive energy system for the economy and industries as a platform for accelerating growth
- deliver affordable energy for households and business, and support more rooftop solar and batteries
- drive better outcomes for workers and communities as partners in the energy transformation.
This Plan is for every Queenslander, our economy, as well as our industries, households, businesses, workers, and communities.
It sets out actions that will:
- provide confidence to investors and capital markets
- deliver clean, reliable and affordable energy to households and businesses
- give certainty and deliver better outcomes to our workers and communities
- unlock opportunities for industry and more investment.
