Labor’s climate and energy spokesman Mark Butler joins Energy Insiders to explain the details of Labor’s energy and climate policy, and how to reach 50% renewables and 45% emission reduction cuts by 2030.

Butler discusses the new $5 billion Energy Modernisation Fund, why the Clean Energy Finance Corporation will get another $10 billion, and the mechanism of the proposed revisit of the NEG, and the fall-back position of CEFC- run reverse auctions.

Also on the agenda is the battery storage incentive scheme, electric vehicles, the “baseload and credit” scheme that might be introduced to bring emission reduction schemes to other sectors, the changing politics over energy, the need to actually hit the 2°C warming limit outlined in the Paris treaty, let alone the 1.5°C target, and the latest UN climate conference.
