Claims that Australia could suffer from power blackouts during the 2019-20 summer reflect the need for a co-ordinated national energy policy, according to Energy Users Association of Australia CEO Andrew Richards. He says asking big power users to again take part in voluntary load shedding to help prevent blackouts represents a "Band-Aid on top of another Band-Aid". His comments regarding the need for a co-ordinated energy plan have been echoed by ERM Power CEO executive Jon Stretch.
