The perils of Aussie parochialism

Australia is just one relatively minor player in a global push to develop low carbon electricity supplies. The continued pre-occupation of policy makers on only supporting technologies considered to be special or strategic to Australia is absurd.

Reading between the lines of the latest Energy White Paper I see a long-running and contradictory argument that the Australian government should ‘not pick winners’, but at the same time have an exclusive focus on ‘strategic’ technologies.
