Australia needs to learn from Europe’s energy mistakes - Courier Mail

Earlier this year, a coal fired power station in Central Queensland exploded. It was a freak accident and fortunately there was no loss of life or injuries. Thousands of people lost power immediately. Over the coming months while the power station was taken offline as a precaution, Queensland recorded its highest ever electricity prices.

The explosion in Queensland was unplanned but within a year we will start the planned closure of coal fired power stations right across Australia. The aftermath of this year’s explosion shows that we are not ready.
