Energy

  • Adopt an integrated energy and climate change policy which focuses on affordability, reliability, and emissions reduction.
  • This integrated policy must deliver long-term certainty and send a signal to investors to enable them to plan for the future.
  • Support a technology-neutral approach to the energy mix, ensuring the cheapest and most reliable energy generation gets built at the right time and in the right place.
    • Allow all forms of clean energy technologies to succeed based on merit including carbon capture and storage for coal and gas, geothermal, solar, wave or wind. Nuclear energy as a source of lower emissions technology should not be ignored.
