Collinsville Green Energy Hub
The Collinsville Green Energy Hub is a large-scale wind and solar energy project proposed for an area near Collinsville and south-west of Bowen in North Queensland.
The site is located within the proposed Northern Queensland Renewable Energy Zone and the project is expected to generate up to 3,000 megawatts of renewable energy, making it one of the largest renewable energy precincts under development in Australia.
Various technical studies and environmental surveys are underway with a view to submitting a development application with the Queensland Government and referring the proposal to the Department of Environment to commence the Commonwealth environmental assessment process in early 2024.
- Target generation capacity: Up to 3,000 megawatts
- Target completion date: 2030
- Total investment of over $7.5 billion
- Support Queensland’s goal of 70% renewable energy by 2032.
- A reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of approximately 3,000,000 t/CO2-e per year
- Creation of hundreds of jobs during construction
- Expected to generate over $1 billion of local and regional expenditure during construction
- Provide significant economic activity across the Whitsunday, Mackay, Burdekin and Isaac Regional Council areas
