Solving Queensland's Energy Crisis - Webinar
Australia's fossil fuel reliance has meant that Queensland has had the highest wholesale prices in the National Electricity Market since late 2021. First outages at coal and gas-fired power stations drove up prices and then fuel was then added to the fire when Russia invaded Ukraine and the international price of coal and gas skyrocketed. While some global factors are outside of our control, it cannot be disputed that our ageing coal power stations are becoming increasingly unreliable.
Our Webinar: Solving Queensland's Energy Crisis, hosted with Solar Citizens, dived into the details of why Queensland is feeling the crunch and what we need to demand the Queensland Government does to fix it.
Queensland Conservation Council's Energy Strategist and Renewable Energy Engineer, Clare Silcock, break down the issue and offer solutions to fix it.
Don't forget to sign up to our upcoming actions, including the launch of Queensland CAN: a report underpinning a roadmap for Queensland to create jobs by building climate solutions that cut climate pollution.
Following the Queensland CAN launch we'll be rolling out a bunch of actions like meeting with State MPs to ask them to support the Queensland CAN roadmap, and sharing the report with the community via events and market stalls - sign up to volunteer here.
