Regional Energy Transformation Partnerships Framework Consultation

The Queensland Government has released the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan outlining policies and actions to deliver a clean, reliable and affordable energy system that will provide power for generations.

A key pillar of the Plan is to drive better outcomes for workers and communities as partners in the energy transformation.

The Regional Energy Transformation Partnerships Framework sets out principles for:

  • partnering with community, local government, First Nations peoples and industry
  • delivering improved community outcomes from government initiatives and investment
  • encouraging best practice from private investment into clean energy infrastructure.

The Partnerships Framework has seven principles that can be applied across all aspects of the energy transformation. This includes development of new renewable energy generation, energy storage projects like batteries and pumped hydro, as well as the substantial investments in transmission and distribution network infrastructure we need to reach our renewable energy and emissions targets.


Consultation so far

The Partnerships Framework has been developed with input from consultation on local benefits as part of Queensland Renewable Energy Zones (QREZ) development. This includes a community survey, and consultation with peak bodies and energy stakeholders in the development of the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan.

This has provided early insights into principles for the energy transformation and guided the development of initial actions as part of the Partnerships Framework.


Have your say

The Queensland Government wants community voices to continue to guide how the energy transformation can deliver real and lasting benefits to Queensland regions. Regional consultation on the draft Partnerships Framework will be undertaken from late 2022 to mid-2023 to give communities the opportunity to shape and tailor the framework for their local community.

Having your say will help to deliver on the current actions listed under each principle and identify further action required to maximise benefits for Queensland communities, and deliver on regional opportunities as part of the energy transformation.


You can have your say by:


The survey will be open until mid-2023.
