Unplugging the power discord

This year has been marked by a dispiriting debate about electricity supply and provision in Australia, with power price issues unresolved, gas prices rising and retailers bracing for deregulation.

We’re coming up to the Chinese Year of the Horse – a symbol of speed and success – which is a pretty ironic thought if you are focussed on domestic energy supply.

No matter where you look in terms of the power sector, the 2014 prospects are not exactly electrifying and expecting good news for gas users is at least one bridge too far. Actually, make that two bridges – or maybe it should be three.
