Is Origin playing games with the RET?

Pacific Hydro's Lane Crockett, in an interview with Climate Spectator, points out a series of issues with Origin's approach to the Renewable Energy Target.

In a prior interview with Climate Spectator, Grant King proposed that the level of the Renewable Energy Target be reduced over the period to 2020 but then perhaps accelerated after 2020 to a ‘25 per cent by 2025 target’. King’s argument, in this interview as well as others, has been that there’s no need for new renewable energy projects to meet RET requirements until 2016, but then we’ll have to squeeze a large amount of construction activity into a very compressed time period.
