As Energy Minister Angus Taylor meets with state and territory counterparts in Adelaide today, the New South Wales Coalition government of Gladys Berejiklian has said the Morrison government is "out of touch" on energy and climate policy and needs to change course to target net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi says there's a simple way to guarantee reliable, low-priced power and that's for the Federal government to put out to tender its $450 million dollar energy spend.

The Australian Financial Review reports, the attack from New South Wales takes aim at a key vulnerability for Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who labelled energy minister Angus Taylor the "minister for lowering power prices" and pointedly separated energy and climate change when he appointed his new ministry on August 24.
The portfolios had been brought together by former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull when he replaced former prime minister Tony Abbott in 2015.
In September this year, Senator Bernardi told the Senate that the UN-induced climate alarmist panic is a giant con and nothing is more important to Australians than having reliable, cheap power.
