Central Queensland is on the move. Changing public perceptions reflect the accelerating and inevitable transformation of the global economy towards net zero. This profound shift will fundamentally alter markets for Australia exports, decreasing demand for fossil fuels while ramping up opportunities for new clean exports, such as green hydrogen and ammonia. Today’s challenge is to ensure that no one is left behind during the change and that the best possible opportunities and outcomes are secured for central Queenslanders and Australians at large.

Key findings:

  • Central Queensland has the abundant natural resources, skilled workforce and existing industry base to be a leader in renewable energy and clean industries.
  • Investing in the development of renewables and clean industries is an investment in central Queensland and its communities.
  • Central Queenslanders are ready to lead this economic transformation, but need government leadership and support to take full advantage of the opportunities.
