Australia is meant to achieve certain carbon emission reduction targets by 2030, but there are concerns that these targets will not be met without an appropriate mechanism in place. The Federal Government appears to have abandoned the Finkel Review’s proposed Clean Energy Target, while the Renewable Energy Target will end in 2020. There are suggestions that the government’s Direct Action scheme could be used as an alternative to the RET, although Australian Energy Council CEO Matthew Warren contends that it would have to be reconfigured in order to be viable.
