Federal Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg says he has held "constructive" discussions with his state counterparts regarding the proposed national energy guarantee ahead of a Council of Australian Governments meeting on 20 April. Frydenberg is optimistic that the states and territories will reach agreement on the final design stage of the NEG. The Victorian, Queensland and Australian Capital Territory governments have reservations about the NEG, particularly its carbon emission reduction targets. Frydenberg has ruled out any compromise to increase the reduction targets.
