Shock tactics won't help Sydney's energy challenge

The state of Sydney's pylons, cables, transformers and switching yards is a key issue for 2014, but media scare stories about the risk of city blackouts adds little value to the debate.

There are numerous 'Sydneys' and they all have different energy needs as well as communities with differing views about energy supply tied in with their concerns about greenhouse gas emissions.

'Greater Sydney' encompasses 45 municipalities in an area from the CBD to the foothills of the Blue Mountains, to the edge of Wollongong and to the fringes of Newcastle.
