Coalpac coal mine rejected as ‘unacceptable’ for power generators and environment groups
Queensland’s government has rejected coal mining as a possible solution to the coal shortage because there is “unacceptable” environmental impacts from the project.
Queensland’s Energy Minister James Merlino told a Senate Energy and Resources committee that while there was an enormous amount of capacity to make coal, the “market forces” at play did not allow it.
But Mr Merlino said the government would consider a renewable energy (REC) project like the One Nation/One Nation Energy project.
One Nation has said it is working with Queensland Power to explore coal options.
The party has not named any projects it may look at더킹 카지노 but the WA Liberal MP Steve Field MP has suggested the company can also consider solar power as a option if the state’s electricity supply becomes more expensive and is unable to meet its demand, ABC News reported.
The project would run on coal that would then be converted to coal-fired electricity.
‘We cannot get rid of coal’
“If the price gets back to where we are making some of our energy from, we could put it there and get a lot of energy for it,” Mr Merlino said.
“[But] we would be making a very important distinction between what is feasible and what is acceptable,” he said.
Queensland Power said while its coal projects had been approved, the state Government “expects” it will work with One Nation to explore a “re-use of existing coal”, in what it said would be “a process that could be much faster, much less expensive”.
“The Queensland Government is aware of efforts in One Nation’s area, including at its Carmichael coal mine, as a possible solution,” Queensland Power spokesman Tim Cunliffe said.
“We do not have a position on any One Nation plan, and Queensland will not support anything until it is fully implemented and commercialised,” he said.
Opposition environment spokesman Mark Dreyfus has been pushing for the Government to stop the development, and he said the Queensland Government was “bluffing” on whether the state would have any invo코인 카지노lvement in the One Nation project, “or not”.
“I think they’re telling us and not letting us know if they’ll engage in a dialogue, but we would like to know the answersSM 카지노 to that,” Mr Dreyfus said.
