COAG Energy Council signs off on package of reliability measures that have emerged from the wreckage of the National Energy Guarantee.
What sort of policy do we need to take Australia’s electricity grid into 2019 and beyond? Some of the nation’s leading energy innovators tell us what’s on their list.
NSW Coalition energy minister slams federal government’s continued refusal to restore emissions component of the National Energy Guarantee, vows to continue to fight for the “critical matter.”
Energy Security Board chair says that parts of proposed NEG policy package live on through discussions with states – and could be in place by the end of 2019.
So the NEG is dead – where to now? It’s time for politics to adopt the renewables model: a decentralised and distributed framework.
Senior advisor at Melbourne University’s Climate and Energy College explains why the National Energy Guarantee won’t deliver any of its three promises.
Anything deviating from transitioning to a reliable, firmed renewable grid will end up costing Australians and Australian business more in the long run.
It will likely be another 6 weeks before the NEG is decided, but Coalition is refusing to cede any ground on flexibility to the Labor states.
Federal energy minister says Victoria’s lights will go out if Labor states don’t support NEG. Victoria energy minister says: poppycock.
Queensland, Victoria and the ACT were quite right to reject the proposed National Energy Guarantee in its present form. To do so now would have been undeserved reward for the destructive actions of former prime minister Tony Abbott.
