What does the Government's new energy plan look like and what does it mean for your advocacy?
Energy policy and how this impacts power bills for households and businesses is shaping up to be the issue de jour. It's been the unrelenting headache for the Federal Government and the Opposition, along with State Governments.
At the heart of the issue is how to lock in reliable and affordable power while reducing emissions.
This week, the Turnbull Government released its energy plan, which will see the Government abandon a Clean Energy Target in an effort to reduce power prices, and introduce a 'National Energy Guarantee' to encourage investment in renewables while ensuring grid stability.
Green politicians and aligned political groups have savaged the Government for winding back subsidies for renewables, including the Clean Energy Target. Other industry groups have welcomed the measures as a good first step.
This will see the energy debate intensify as we march toward the 2019 election.
