Australia’s regulators still can’t imagine a clean energy future

It is also the future the energy. The Australian Energy Market Operator ‘ As ITK analyst David Leitch points out here, and as The Greens point out,

Well, hallelujah. It turns out Australian households are going to get free electricity ‘ at least on the generation side ‘ if you believe the modelling that has been shoved at us from the Energy Security Board and now the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

According to ACCC data released in its voluminous and damning report on the electricity market on Wednesday, the average household bill in Australia is $1,636 a year, of which $560 is made up from wholesale electricity.

According to the ESB modelling, they are going to be able to reduce household bills by $400 a year thanks to the reduction in prices of the wholesale market, initially due to the impact of more wind and solar via the renewable energy target, and then by the National Energy Guarantee.

The real Brexit drama is just beginning

‘The numbers just don’t stack up,’ one cabinet minister wearily declared to me on Monday night. This is, perhaps, the single most important fact in British politics today: Theresa May does not currently have the votes to pass her Brexit plan even if she could get the European Union to accept it.

Boris Johnson and David Davis’s resignations mean that it won’t just be Jacob Rees-Mogg and a dozen ultras voting against Theresa May’s Brexit deal, but a far larger group. Further proof of this came on Tuesday, when two of the party’s vice-chairs ‘ Ben Bradley and Maria Caulfield ‘ resigned so that they could oppose the deal. Tellingly, neither one would have been on anyone’s list of Brexit obsessives. When I asked a Remain’voting cabinet minister where things will now end up, he predicted that there would be ’60-odd voting against’ Mrs May’s compromise, ‘and you can’t make up for that with pragmatic Labour MPs’.
