Queensland State Government has appointed a panel of leading energy experts to form the Queensland Energy System Advisory Board.

This independent technical advisory board will play a crucial role in providing guidance and recommendations to ensure a smooth and coordinated energy transformation.

The Queensland Energy System Advisory Board (QESAB) will be chaired by Leeanne Bond, a professional engineer with extensive experience in shaping major green energy projects across the nation.

According to the State Government, Bond’s expertise spans energy and resources, technology and innovation, infrastructure, and governance of significant capital projects.

The board’s primary responsibilities will include advising the government on the Queensland SuperGrid Infrastructure Blueprint review and update process.

These energy experts will help to ensure that the state remains on track to meet its renewable energy targets, maintain a safe, secure, and reliable electricity supply, and minimise long-term electricity costs for Queensland consumers.

Mick de Brenni, QLD’s Energy Minister, said to deliver the energy transition the state need “the best of the best”, and the appointment of seven board members represent “decades of knowledge and experience in the field”.

“These energy superheroes will help the Miles Government deliver on its nation leading energy plan, providing independent advice and ensuring we stay on track as we decarbonise,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to working closely with the new board, as we continue our energy transformation and work towards delivering cheaper, cleaner energy for generations to come.”

de Brenni added that the inaugural board is bolstered by seven individuals with a vast array of expertise.

“The announcement of the board members represents a commitment made in the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan and it is an important piece for Queensland’s energy future,” he said.
