Fraser BartonAAP The Queensland government will legislate commitments to renewable energy targets, after a bill was tabled to state parliament. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said her government will legislate commitments to 50 per cent of the state's energy being renewable by 2030, 70 per cent by 2032 and 80 per cent by 2035. The government hopes to secure 54 per cent majority public ownership for generation assets, and full ownership of transmission assets. The bill will also legislate a job security guarantee under the Queensland Energy Workers Charter. "Today we forge ahead on that journey by introducing the laws that will guide our transition from coal-fired power to renewable energy in our state," Ms Palaszczuk told parliament on Tuesday. "By delivering reliable, affordable and renewable power for manufacturing jobs supporting our regions. "We can do this because we own our assets, and this bill is all about continuing that into the future." The decision has been welcomed by the Queensland Conservation Council (QCC), which called on the state opposition to endorse the laws. With a state election 12 months away, the QCC said bipartisan support to transform Queensland's energy system is vital for consumers, workers and the environment. "Every new solar and wind project that connects to the grid is bringing down power bills, reducing the state's emissions and creating regional jobs. That's a win-win-win for our hip-pocket, environment and economy," said QCC director Dave Copeman. "We need the state opposition to back this legislation to demonstrate they are committed to ending the climate and energy wars, and getting on with the transition to clean, renewable energy."
