Let's go to the AEMO report. The Energy Market Operator is not recommending extending the life of coal generators. Its clear preference is an ambitious national plan for more renewables, embracing the modernisation of the grid and accelerating the uptake of new technologies like storage, smart software and demand management. Why won't the government adopt this plan and rule out spending one cent of public money on extending the life of the Liddell coal-fired plant?
