Greens climate change spokesperson Adam Bandt MP has today called on Energy and Emissions Reduction Minister Angus Taylor to do his job, end the war on renewables and extend the Renewable Energy Target (RET) to cut pollution and lower power bills.
"If Angus Taylor wants to do his job and cut emissions, he needs to extend the RET," said Mr Bandt.
"Australia's energy sector is facing a valley of death from the coming investment strike.
"It's time for Australia to end its war on renewables. We need to extend the RET, establish a national storage target and significantly boost investment in the grid.
"Angus Taylor is like an internet dater ghosting on the state and territory Energy Ministers, refusing to host a COAG Energy Minister's meeting since December 2018. We are a country floundering without an energy policy.
"Angus Taylor needs to do his job, call a COAG meeting and extend the RET to lower energy costs and cut pollution."
