QUEENSLAND’S resource and construction sector are coming together to highlight the state’s renewable energy projects and promote jobs with more than $5 billion of supply chain procurement opportunities at an online industry conference tomorrow.
The Connecting Renewable Energy Conference Queensland features 15 solar, wind, battery, hydro-electric, and hydrogen projects all highlighting their business and supply chain procurement opportunities within the renewable energy, construction, and resource sector.
Event organiser, Connecting Industry Managing Director Kieran Moran said Queensland is being recognised globally as an ideal location for growing industries such as renewables, hydrogen, and associated manufacturing hubs.
“The strategic focus of the online conference is to not only highlight renewable energy projects and their procurement opportunities to assist the supply chain in their planning for future work opportunities, but to also allow industry throughout Queensland and from around Australia get the right information to make informed choices, network, and build strong industry relationships,” Mr Moran said.
“With projects like Fortescue Future Industries Global Green Energy Manufacturing Centre, Acciona Energia’s Macintyre Wind Farm and Aldoga Solar Farm, Energy Estates HyNQ Clean Energy Project, and Genex Power’s Bouldercombe Battery Project, the conference features presentations from the decision makers who have come together to present their plans for construction and development.”
Energy Estate are developing a number of renewable energy projects throughout Queensland. Principal and Co-Founder Simon Currie said Queensland is uniquely positioned to leverage its abundance of natural resources and play a pivotal role in the transition to a green economy.
“We are passionate about developing the renewable energy generation required to deliver on Queensland’s decarbonisation narrative, whether that is for the smelters, electrorlyser manufacturing, or the many recently announced hydrogen production opportunities,” Mr Currie said.
“Our development approach reflects that this energy transformation must be done in an open and measured way that is respectful as to the impact of the decline of some existing industries and jobs.”
Delivered via live video virtual streaming, Mr Moran added the event is facilitated by a dedicated conference platform allowing all delegates to connect, engage, network, and have private live face to face meetings with presenting project speakers and all attendees.
