Major electricity companies maintain that the construction of new coal-fired power stations is not economically viable, despite a push by some Coalition MPs. A spokesperson for EnergyAustralia says the company’s focus is on a "modern energy system" based on renewables and technology such as battery storage. Ben Skinner of the Australian Energy Council argues that clean-coal technology would not significantly reduce the "material carbon risk" of coal-fired power plants.
