“We can electrify the smart way, or the slow and expensive way”

…To electrify the smart way Australia needs an electrification plan, argues Craig Memery, Senior energy advisor for the Public Interest Advocacy Centre.

“We need a plan, we need a strategy, we need a common goal held by governments, by industry, by consumers, by the market institution and others that says this is where we want to get to,” says Memery.

“The starting point really for doing it smarter has to be policies and decisions by regulators and market institutions that lock in electrification as the future.”

“Once the gas businesses have been put on notice about what they can expect from the future, it will give them no option but to plan for that future.”
