The re-election of the Morrison Government federally has strengthened its resolve to implement its energy policies. Previously proposed abatement targets, ‘big stick’ legislation and generation underwriting are all being progressed. Only 6 months earlier, however, the Andrews Government was re-elected in Victoria with a very different set of policies. Other states are also progressing their own plans, and both the Morrison and Andrews Governments are scheduled to have their next elections in 2022.
What will happen over the next 3 years? Will Commonwealth and State members of the COAG Energy Council continue fighting? Will energy prices, emissions and system security deteriorate as a result? Or will compromise and consensus start to appear?
Join our panel of experts, including Rachel Watson, Anna Collyer, Michael Brear and moderator Tony Wood, to throw light on these questions in the next of our Energy Futures series of public policy forums.
