Energy policy-makers and industry stakeholders are attending a conference in Sydney this week, and Mr Davies is urging attendees to stop thinking about gas and electricity separately.
“Energy conferences usually have a gas stream and an electricity stream, and these are often attended by different people,” said Mr Davies.
“Energy policy papers always have an electricity section and a gas section, and so do most government energy departments and most energy businesses.
“Energy policy is almost always managed and progressed in silos. Electricity, gas and petrol are considered separately as commodities rather than sources of energy. Households and businesses, those that produce energy, those that transport energy and those that use energy are all examined in silos.
