The Energy (Renewable Transformation and Jobs) Act 2024 (the Act) was passed in April 2024 and is a key enabler of the energy transformation. The Act establishes new arrangements to deliver major transmission investments in Queensland, known as Priority Transmission Investments.

The Priority Transmission Investment framework, including a tailored fit-for-purpose investment test, enables investment in critical transmission infrastructure in accordance with the Queensland SuperGrid Infrastructure Blueprint (Blueprint), supporting the realisation of Queensland’s renewable energy targets and decarbonisation.

Powerlink, the Queensland Government, Queensland Energy Security Advisory Board (QESAB) and 'suitably qualified persons' (as defined in the Act) also have roles and responsibilities within the process.

Learn more about the Priority Transmission Investment framework, which transmission investments it may apply to and ways to get involved.
