The energy crisis continues in Australia and around the world. In this episode we learn from Tennant of the situation and the prospects of energy supply and price for Australian businesspeople over the next few months.

We then have a wide ranging discussion on the various energy sources available to Australia, the economics of the market,  and what it means for business operators:

  • Is nuclear energy generations a feasible and practical option? What’s the economics?
  • Is hydro-electricity a future energy source in Australia?
  • Does Australia need a centralised energy policy?
  • What is the future of Electric Vehicles in Australia?
  • Does innovation kill  market efficiency?.
  • What’s the latest on the EU’s proposed Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism and what does it mean for Australia? And…..
