Electricity in Queensland

The electricity industry is made up of 4 distinct yet interconnected sectors that produce and deliver electricity to homes and businesses - electricity generation, transmission, distribution and retail.

Electricity infrastructure and assets in Queensland are owned by a mix of government and private sector companies.

The Queensland Government owns more than $35 billion of generator, network and distribution electricity assets. It continues to invest to ensure a stable and reliable supply of electricity, with significant capital investment through the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan. The Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan outlines how Queensland's energy system will transform to deliver clean, reliable and affordable energy to provide power for generations. With 2 new renewable energy targets of 70% renewable energy by 2032 and 80% by 2035, Queensland will be powered by clean renewable energy.
