In Australia, the Powering Queensland Plan sets out the Queensland government's strategy to achieve 50 per cent renewable energy by 2030, to reduce emissions and act on climate change, create new jobs and diversify the economy.
We are exploring both acquisition and development opportunities across the Australian National Electricity Market with an initial preference for Queensland based projects. Site suitability is being assessed on availability, transmisson system access and potential planning and environmental constraints.
About the technology
Wind can be turned into electricity using wind turbines, which can be grouped together in numbers to form wind farms. The kinetic energy of the moving air causes the blades of the turbine to spin, and this motion powers a generator that produces electricity.
