‘Absolutely impossible’ to achieve 50 per cent by 2030 without a radical change to the economy

The Menzies Research Centre’s Nick Cater says it is “extraordinary” that the Liberal Party promised to go to 50 per cent renewable energy.

Chris Bowen says nuclear is too dear & renewables are the only answer. The Rolls-Royce SMR would cost around 3.2 BAUD to generate 470 MWe. Say Australia uses about 32,000 MW that equates to ~70 plants or ~225 BAUD. CSIRO says just upgrading the power network is 500-1,000 TAUD
I still believe that nuclear energy has to be a component of the solution. But I also understand that Australians will first need to be brought around to believe that it is the most environmentally responsible solution.
