Parliament set to debate $1 billion energy fund Labor fears will reward fossil fuel projects

The $1 billion Grid Reliability Fund will be debated in the House of Representatives on Wednesday amid a debate over the future of fossil fuels.Labor and environmental groups have argued the laws are flawed as funding could flow through to gas and coal projects. The Climate Action Tracker report by international climate science and policy institute Climate Analytics says that coal-fired power can be phased out by 2030 in a planned and regulated process to enable a just transition – using renewables and advanced storage – without gas.
