TICKY FULLERTON: Angus Taylor, you are the Minister for down, down electricity prices, but you announced this week reliability is on your radar. Can you colour that for me?
ANGUS TAYLOR: Well our focus is on getting electricity prices down, but also while we keep the lights on. What we're seeing right now Ticky, is a big investment in intermittent generation - this is typically-

KIERAN GILBERT: Joining Laura and I now is the Energy Minister, Angus Taylor. Minister, thanks very much for your time. I want to ask you about this major climate report by the UN's climate body that says coal generated power has to be phased out by 2050 internationally, if the worst effects of climate change are to be avoided. What's your response to that?

LEON BYNER: Well we know that the Federal Government have been able to be the conduit for a rule change where power retailers who you deal with, are now going to be forced by law as of next year - these things seem to take so long - anyway, the rules as of February mean they've got to give you five or six days' notice if they're going to put your prices up. We've got the Minister on the line. I'm very pleased to say that he's made himself available today.

DAVID BEVAN: Angus Taylor, Federal Minister for Energy, welcome to ABC Radio Adelaide.
ANGUS TAYLOR: Thanks for having me.

What can you do to give people fair warning?

KIERAN GILBERT: Now to my interview earlier this morning with the Energy Minister Angus Taylor. We discussed a range of issues but began with the fundamental question around the National Energy Guarantee - or the NEG as it's been called, that acronym - is it dead, is the government moving on from it? Here was my interview with Angus Taylor.
Energy Minister Angus Taylor, thanks so much for your time. Can I start with some clarification; is the NEG - the National Energy Guarantee - dead, as we once knew it?

FRAN KELLY: Well the Federal Government's drive to cheaper energy costs has been undermined this morning by revelations that Cabinet rejected a billion-dollar plan to help struggling households pay their power bills. Fairfax is reporting that Cabinet knocked back a proposal last month by the former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull for a one-off bonus worth up to $125 for pensioners and other low-income earners. Just a couple of weeks later Malcolm Turnbull was dumped as leader.
