IEEFA podcast: What’s the ‘new normal’ post coronavirus? Australia says gas.

This is a mistake.

The coronavirus pandemic continues to take its toll. Most countries still have cities and regions in lockdown, businesses are losing money hand over fist, and people everywhere are being sorely affected.

During these extraordinary times, governments are already planning for a post-locked-down world.  Questions are being raised about whether we need to bring old habits into the new normal.

The Australian government is one that has begun assessing its economic future, but it appears to be relying on old ingredients.

This week, Australia’s federal energy minister Angus Taylor, and the chairman of the National COVID-19 Coordination Commission, Neville Power, claimed the fossil fuel – gas – would be part of the country’s recovery post COVID-19.
