State government energy policy - Queensland

The energy functions of the Queensland government are administered by a number of departments, with those most directly involved being responsible to the one minister. Coordinated advice on energy matters is provided to the government through this minister by the Queensland Energy Resources Advisory Council. This body also liaises with the various national energy committees. There is no published statement on energy policy emanating from the Queensland government. Policies are developed with flexibility to meet the rapidly changing energy situation. Coal is the state's most important energy resource and there is great potential for its further development for export as well as domestic requirements, particularly electricity generation. Coal and oil shale are seen to have important future roles in the production of liquid fuels and other hydrocarbons in Queensland. In the development of its energy resources and the administration of energy policies the government works closely with industry (a).
