COAG EC agrees to investigate the NEG further

The COAG Energy Council met in Hobart today.
There was an agreement to precede with further work on the National Energy Guarantee (NEG) proposed by the Energy Security Board and put forward by the Federal Government.
Only the ACT and South Australia opposed as they wanted the COAG to pursue other ways of cutting emissions.
Queensland decided not to vote, as it is in caretaker mode ahead of tomorrow’s state election.
The COAG Energy Council will meet again to discuss in April 2018 when more details on the NEG will be available.
