Australia’s Queensland Identifies Geothermal Exploration Sites

Australia’s Queensland state has identified 11 new sites for geothermal energy exploration, as the nation seeks cleaner energy alternatives to coal and oil.

The sites cover about 3,000 square kilometers (1,864 square miles), Queensland Mines and Energy Minister Stephen Robertson said in a statement yesterday.

The state has granted 40 permits for geothermal exploration since the first calls for tenders were gazetted in 2005.

Robertson told Parliament yesterday the state will also invest A$5 million ($4.9 million) to determine the geothermal potential of areas closer to coastal power transmission infrastructure.
