Under: Carbon price
Watch this extended interview
with Origin Energy's Grant King on the effects the carbon price and the Renewable Energy Target.
Quote: Origin Energy's chief executive Grant King has told Inside Business a low carbon price would
lead to future investment in coal rather than gas-powered plants.
"If the price was always going to be $6 you'd be building coal-fired power stations," he said.
"A carbon price of more like $40 is necessary to really swing the economics from building
coal to gas.
"Insofar as we rely on the carbon price to cause different decisions to be made, we've been
very clear through this debate that $20, let alone $6, will not change the decision to build coal
instead of gas."
