Premier Dominic Perrottet has blamed Australia’s energy woes on the “ideological war” over climate change scaring off private investment, saying his state’s renewable targets will help future-proof its power supply.

As stress on the east coast’s power supply reached critical levels this week, Perrottet said what had been “lost in this entire debate” was the impact of Australia’s climate policy on investment.

“The issue here, that NSW, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia are dealing with now, has been the ideological war when it comes to climate change and energy policy in this country, and that has led to a lack of private sector investment,” he said.

A quarter of Australia’s power supply was offline on Wednesday, due to multiple plant failures and rising coal prices, leading the Australian Energy Market Operator to suspend the energy market amid the risk of blackouts.
