Informa Australia is delighted to announce the forthcoming Queensland Energy 2.0 which will be held on December 7th and 8th at the Novotel Brisbane. This event will review the new government policy, new projects and new technologies being rolled out across that State.
The Palaszczuk government aims to reach 50% renewable energy by 2030 and is funding several clean energy projects across the State, hoping that renewable energies can serve as a foundation for Queensland’s economic recovery from the impacts of Covid-19.
New analysis from Green Energy Markets (GEM) and community-led group Solar Citizens suggests that more than 51,000 jobs could be created in Queensland (QLD) if all the large-scale renewable energy projects currently in the pipeline were given the green light.
As it stands, 108 large-scale renewable energy projects worth an estimated $36 billion to the QLD economy are in the development pipeline.
Solar, wind and hydro industries have the potential for a manufacturing boom.
Some of the topics the conference agenda will cover include:
- The Queensland energy market and the latest government policy
- Designated Renewable Energy Zones
- Clean energy projects: wind farms, pumped hydro, large scale-solar, battery storage
- Energy infrastructure: interconnectors and new gas pipeline
- Opportunities and challenges by connecting LS renewable generators to the NEM
- Grid stability
- Hydrogen strategy in Queensland
- Investment opportunities
- Community engagement and social license
