Matt Canavan looks to Japan for low-emissions coal-fired power
Nationals MP Matt Canavan is encouraging Australia to efficiently use coal-fired power stations amid warnings of higher energy prices.
The Greens in Germany have decided to kickstart nuclear power heading into winter, while Japan recently launched a low-emissions coal-fired power station.
Mr Canavan told Ben Fordham Australia doesn’t have the same technology.
“We’ve got the world’s best coal, but we don’t have the world’s best coal-fired power technology.”
