Martin Ferguson has made the government's first acknowledgement that the long era of increasing energy demand is coming to the end, but in his speech he missed a key reason why.

In the speech Ferguson said:

“Revised…forecasts provide for a new demand and investment dynamic in the National Energy Market... And demand is not expected to return to growth in the years ahead.”
