Queensland to build A$23m renewables facility for Covid-19 recovery

By JP Casey

The Queensland Government has announced plans to invest A$17m into a “renewable energy training facility” that will form part of the state’s long-term response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The state investment will be matched by a A$6m contribution from the renewable power industry and will ultimately provide skills training for 750 apprentices a year, while aiding a further 26,000 electricians with additional training.

“This is part of the second stage of our Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs plan which is all about creating jobs and future proofing Queensland,” said premier Annastacia Palaszczuk. “The new facility will provide world class training in electrical, solar, and telecommunications for thousands of Queenslanders each year while creating more than 40 jobs during construction.”
