State government policies on renewable energy and "mindless moratoriums" on gas fields will be discussed at an energy ministers' meeting as the Turnbull government tries to shift the blame for rising power prices.
Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg said on Sunday that the overwhelming consideration of Coalition MPs was the cost of power, but he pointed the finger at state government policies which, he said, had been significant contributors to the problem.
"The states just don't step up to the plate on this issue," Mr Frydenberg told Sky News.
