The policies and programs around accelerating renewable energy investment in Australia and ensuring the lights don't go out when coal fired stations close down has to be an immediate priority. Mucking around for 18 months would be a recipe for electoral disaster. The pressure from Greens ,Teal and Labour voters to see this happen will be massive. Hopefully.. someone has been doing their homework and can hit the ground running. There are certainly enough organisations that have developed strategies that would be capable of being put into action.
I can see a lot of midnight oil being burnt in the new Government.
Unfortunately I think we are going to see the Red dog being wagged by the Green tail
