The heatwave has killed more than 50,000 people in Queensland.

The company was launched in 2017 and has had the support of Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, and the Government.
It operates from a new facility in Brisbane with an estimated capacity of up to 50,600 people, although the company is looking to increase the capacity.
The operation uses an array of low-tech systems, such as heat pumps and ducting.
The majority of the energy used to run the business is supplied by wind, solar and geothermal sources.
The electricity costs around $300 per month, and comes from a range of sources, including electricity generated by the city of Brisbane, the state-owned Queensland Hydro, a state-run coal plant, and electricity from the Queensland Power Corporation.
Heat Island has also had the backing of local politicians, who are working to reduce the city’s reliance on fossil fuels.
“It’s a great project and the people working there have made it very affordable,” said Paul Mottram, Heat Island’s general manager.
Mottra told the ABC’s The Footy Show that he was “very happy” with the heat in Brisbane during the heatwaves. “
The fact that the Government is involved makes it very attractive to local businesses, and it’s good for the economy.”
Mottra told the ABC’s The Footy Show that he was “very happy” with the heat in Brisbane during the heatwaves.
“We’ve had a lot more wind and solar in the city, so there’s been a lot less power out there,” he said.
“I think we’ve actually had less power for about a week or so.”
Heat Island currently employs about 15 people and is looking for a new location to expand its workforce.
The new location will cost between $100,000 and $140,000, and Mottrab told the Footy show that he is still in talks with the Government over the price tag.
He hopes to have the new facility operational by June 2020.
