The future of energy with Mike Cannon-Brookes
The cost of energy is a hot issue across Australia at the moment. With the cost of living on the rise and the winter chill looming, many households are concerned about how they'll stay warm without breaking the bank. Tech entrepreneur Mike Cannon-Brookes has been leading the charge in the fight for cleaner and more affordable energy, most prominently trying to take over AGL, a move that was ultimately knocked back. But the billionaire was successful in thwarting a proposed demerger of AGL into two entities recently. Gemma Acton sat down with Cannon-Brookes for a rare one-on-one interview, where he discusses why he opposed the demerger and the future of energy prices in Australia.
