There appears to be a growing view within the Federal Government that a clean energy target, as recommended by Chief Scientist Alan Finkel, is no longer required. This is because the cost of renewable energy is falling more quickly than previously forecast, with the cost of battery technology expected to fall by more than 70 per cent in the period to 2030. Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg is expected to express these sentiments concerning the CET when he gives the keynote address at an energy summit.
