Origin and EnergyAustralia's policy disobedience

Having successfully campaigned to get the carbon price neutered, Origin and EnergyAustralia are arguing the same fate should await the Renewable Energy Target. And they're very confident they'll get their way... again.

The corporate equivalent of civil disobedience on renewable energy laws continues on the front page of the Australian Financial Review on Thursday. Having succeeded in getting the carbon price watered down from $24 to something likely to fall below $10, Origin Energy and EnergyAustralia are now arguing this means the Renewable Energy Target must be neutered too.

According to Origin’s Grant King, “You can’t tamper with one without having to open up the other.”
