Energy Council congratulates new energy minister

The Australian Energy Council congratulates the Hon Mick de Brenni MP on his appointment as the Queensland Government’s Minister for Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen.

The AEC’s Chief Executive, Sarah McNamara, said: “Mick de Brenni brings strong Ministerial experience to his new responsibilities.

“He takes on the role at an exciting and critical juncture as Queensland continues to implement its energy strategy and manage the short and longer-term challenges that the ongoing transformation of the National Electricity Market presents.

“The elevation of hydrogen in the energy portfolio is welcome and underscores the increasing importance of new energy technologies in the ongoing transition of the sector.

“On behalf of our members, I would like to wish the Minister every success in his new role. We look forward to working with him and the Queensland Government on energy policy.”
