A $20 million business case study into a second Bass Strait electricity cable has drawn a mixed response.

  Pink grimaces during Christina Aguilera’s Whitney Houston tribute Pink wasn’t exactly green with envy at the American Music Awards Sunday night. The singer was caught on camera during Christina Aguilera’s tribute with what appeared to be a look of disgust on her face.Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Whitney Houston’s “The Bodyguard,” Aguilera performed “I Will Always Love You,” but the cover didn’t quite go over well.Most noticeable was Pink, who seemed to be grimacing when Aguilera couldn’t hit the high notes.The "What About Us" singer seemed to enjoy the rest of the performance, but even the quickest cringe gets spotted.

The jointly funded Federal and State Government study would look at the route, capacity, cost and timeframe to build a second cable connecting Tasmania to the mainland.

Last year, a study into the viability of a second Basslink cable by Dr John Tamblyn found there were limited scenarios where a second cable would be commercially viable.

In 2015, Tasmania was plunged into a six-month energy supply crisis when the Basslink cable failed, prompting calls for a second cable.

Federal Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg said a second interconnector would be a national infrastructure project.

"It's been estimated that the benefits could be worth up to $500 million from a second interconnector," he said.

"It will enable more renewable power here in Tasmania to be developed and for Tasmania to become the battery for the nation."

PM denies Trump mistook her for Trudeau's wife New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Monday played down suggestions US President Donald Trump confused her with Canadian leader Justin Trudeau’s wife at a summit in Asia last week. Trudeau was supposedly making the introductions as Ardern attended her first major forum since taking office last month when Trump mixed-up the 37-year-old with the Canadian leader's partner Sophie.It was reportedly several minutes before he realised his mistake at the East Asia Summit in Manila.However, Ardern said details of the encounter had become muddled in the retelling and there was actually no confusion on Trump's part.

But Mr Frydenberg would not say who would put up the estimated $1 billion required to pay for it.

"Look I don't want to cross that bridge until we come to it," he said.

Questions over cable costs

Energy analyst Marc White said he was concerned about the overall economic viability of a second interconnector.

"Who ends up paying? And the concern being if the link is used to import into Tasmania then Tasmanians will pay for that service," he said.

A $2.5 million feasibility study to expand Tasmania's hydro scheme is due to hand down its findings by the end of the year.

A second undersea cable would be key to increasing Hydro's capacity.

Mr White said he doubted the economics of the Tasmanian hydro scheme would stack up against the rival Snowy Hydro 2.0 scheme in New South Wales.

"The Snowy scheme has a geographic advantage," he said.

Mr White said he expected improving battery storage technology to play a big part in Tasmania's energy future.

"We think the future for Tasmania is small wind farms and solar farms rather than billion-dollar investments," he said.

Shadow federal energy minister Mark Butler said he supported a feasibility study into a second Basslink cable, but accused the Turnbull Government of being late to the party.

"We do think there is merit in investigating the feasibility, the business case of a second Basslink cable, that's something we announced last year," he said.

Tasmanian Labor MP Madeline Ogilvie said the $20 million fee for a business study was a lot of money.

"If this contributes to a better outcome for the nation, then that is a good thing but we would like to see the detail," she said.
