The REZ Roadmap
Consultation on the draft 2023 Queensland Renewable Energy Zone Roadmap (PDF, 16.9MB) closed on Friday 22 September 2023.
The Department of Energy and Public Works thanks all those who participated and contributed to the consultation process.
Queensland’s potential Renewable Energy Zones (REZs) will help to coordinate development of clean energy infrastructure in areas of high renewable potential, maximising benefits for regional communities.
The draft Roadmap was developed in line with the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan to meet the state’s renewable energy targets of 50 per cent by 2030, 70 per cent by 2032 and 80 per cent by 2035.
Across the Southern, Central, North and Far North Queensland regions we worked with Powerlink Queensland, as the proposed REZ Delivery Body, to identify the indicative location of 12 potential future REZs to be developed in phases to 2035.
- Southern Queensland Renewable Energy Zones
- Central Queensland Renewable Energy Zones
- North and Far North Queensland Renewable Energy Zones.
Feedback on the draft REZ Roadmap focused on these four questions:
- What should the strategic and detailed REZ Readiness Assessments focus on to maximise local opportunities and manage impacts from REZ development?
- How should Regional Energy Reference Groups be established and what role should they play in setting local investment priorities and shaping REZ outcomes?
- Should there be a coordinated scheme in place to invest in local priorities to leave a positive legacy for REZ communities and how should this operate?
- What else do we need to consider for REZ development in Queensland?
