The Nature Conservation Council welcomes AGL’s plans to significantly expand its investment in grid-scale storage. 
“The symbolism of converting Liddell coal-fired power station site into a major battery for clean energy storage could hardly be more powerful,” Nature Conservation Council Chief Executive Chris Gambian said.
“AGL clearly sees the end of coal as inevitable. The only question now is the speed of the transition.
“AGL has also put what should be the final nail in the coffin for the expensive, dirty and unnecessary Narrabri coal seam gas project.
“The science tells us that NSW and Australia have to end coal-fired power generation by 2030 to be on track to meet the Paris targets.
“If the government and business stick to their current plans, they will miss that deadline by 20 years.
“After the bushfire summer from hell that we just lived through, it is clear we cannot afford to delay.
“We applaud AGL’s announcement today, but we urge all companies and governments to lift their level of ambition so Australia has 100% clean energy by 2030.”
