NEP Poll 21 (August) - The Finkel Review
Our latest NEP poll gathers economic expert opinions on the proposed Clean Energy Target scheme recommended by The Finkel Review as a key part of the blue-print for reform of the electricity industry.
The NEP were asked for their opinions on this proposition:
"The Finkel Review has recommended a mandatory certificate scheme that obliges electricity retailers to purchase a certain proportion of the electricity they sell from sources of electricity whose emission intensity is below a defined level. This is preferable to conventional approaches to the pricing of externalities, such as an emission tax or cap and trade scheme."
