Australia should have the cheapest and most reliable electricity in the world, according to the Conservative Party.
We have world-scale and world-class coal, gas and uranium reserves. Yet our electricity sector no longer reflects that.
The Conservatives want to change that, to provide legislative certainty for the ongoing use of fossil fuels.
Australia produces less than 1.5% of global CO2 emissions. Even if Australian emissions were reduced to zero, it would make no perceptible difference to the climate.
The Conservatives will scrap all taxpayer and cross-subsidies for electricity generation and allow market forces to determine the best outcomes for Australian consumers and business.
The Conservative Party's lead Senate candidate for Victoria, Kevin Bailey, says the answer to Australia's energy crisis is simple and only the Conservatives are committed to implementing it.
