The Policy Pitch is a joint initiative of the State Library of Victoria and Grattan Institute to provide a public interest series on key policy themes.

These free public seminars offer lively, intelligent and thoughtful debate.

Gas: too good to burn?

In this Policy Pitch event on Tuesday 21 October, Grattan Institute’s Tony Wood and representatives from small and large customers will discuss what the effects of next year's liquefied natural gas exports from Queensland will have on our gas bills, whether we could or should switch away from gas, and whether we could see a situation in which our gas is priced out of the market.


Tony Wood, Energy Program Director at Grattan Institute; Jo Benvenuti, Executive officer of the Consumer Utilities Advocacy Centre and Chair of the Consumer's Federation of Australia; and Brian Green, an electrical engineer with extensive experience as an operations engineer and manager.
