The NSW government has released the first stage of its long-flagged net zero climate change strategy, that it hopes will kick start $11.6 billion in private investment in the path to zero emissions by 2030 with the launch of two additional Renewable Energy Zones.
Renewable Energy Zones in Queensland
Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced that Queensland will establish three new renewable energy ‘corridors’ as part of a $145 million investment in new transmission infrastructure to unlock new wind and solar investment in the state.

It is true that the sun doesn’t always shine and the wind doesn’t always blow, but with the right transmission infrastructure we can harness energy from a variety of sources across the country.
