With the growing demand for renewable energy and hydrogen, construction of the Pinkenba Renewable Training Facility (RETF) has begun with a $ 23 million grant to Queensland’s renewable energy workers.
Queensland Premier Anastasia Palazzuk said: “Queensland’s renewable energy industry is already worth $ 8.5 billion – this is a crucial investment for Queensland’s future and will help us achieve our 50 per cent renewal plan by 2030.
We now need such resources to ensure that Queensland is ready to go as needed and that the demand for renewable energy and hydrogen has increased dramatically around the world, so trainees and practitioners can develop the skills needed.
That is why we are investing in the core of our $ 14.5 billion CV-19 economic recovery plan.
Due to the amount of sun and wind, Queensland is an ideal candidate for hydrogen production for domestic and international use.
According to Queensland’s Minister of Training and Skills Development, De Arsor said the institute will attract new workers to the industry and meet the needs of existing professionals and workers.
“The institute offers pre-business, training and post-business courses for up to 300 students at a time and supports 40 teaching spaces,” she said.
We know that if they get the right training, they are more likely to get the right job, and this is very important in the growing hydrogen industry – we need Queenslanders to take full advantage of the booming boom. .
“RETF provides classroom and field training in electrical technology and renewable energy, and is the only Queensland training institute to certify fourth-degree renewable energy.
In addition to training professionals, the institute will help electricians who are licensed to install, operate, and operate solar and other renewable energy equipment improve their skills.
According to Farmer, more than 40 jobs will be created during the construction of RFF.
Mr. Farmer said, “The Palazuk government is committed to achieving 50 percent renewable energy by 2030 and this is another step – an important investment.
In Queensland, more than $ 50 million is being invested in training facilities that will enable workers to enter the renewable energy and hydrogen industry.
RFF has a 17-meter-high wind turbine, a 20-meter-high tower, a 30-meter telecommunications tower and a 54-kilowatt single-track solar system that is built around the world’s best practices in electricity, solar energy and telecommunications.
Queensland’s Minister of Energy, Renewal and Hydrogen, Mike de Brenny, said Queenslanders knew how to create export industries and that the training would help Queensland renew its hydrogen potential.
“Our renewable hydrogen industry is dependent on clean energy to generate zero carbon emissions for exports and local industries, including transportation,” said Mr. de Brenny.
“As Queensland begins to create a new energy industry, LNG has generously supported 15,000 new jobs, signaling our readiness to create more talented jobs for a growing audience.
A.D. By 2030, Queenslanders will require thousands of megawatts of new renewable energy from the existing generation, which means that power generation will begin.
The Pinkenba facility will be operated by an electro-training center and will be responsible for the design and construction until June 2022.
