New Zealand Energy Strategy consultations released

The Minister of Energy and Resources has today announced a package of energy-related consultations to support the transition to a low emissions future. We’re now seeking your feedback on policy that will set the direction and pace of change for energy in New Zealand.

These consultations address critical aspects of the energy transition, and will play a key role in shaping the overarching New Zealand Energy Strategy.

We’re consulting on:

  • a plan for managing the gas industry’s transition to a low emissions future;
  • an Interim Hydrogen Roadmap setting out the government’s initial views on the role of hydrogen in our energy transition and the path to a safe and sustainable sector;
  • regulations to enable renewable energy development at sea;
  • measures to make sure electricity is reliable and affordable during the transition to an expanded and more renewable electricity system; and
  • how we will implement the Government’s commitment to ban new fossil fuel baseload electricity generation.

We want to hear from you – your feedback is invaluable in shaping a way forward for our energy system. Thank you for all your input so far in developing and supporting this work.

Consultations are open until 2 November. You can find out more and have a say at

We’re hosting a series of webinars to provide an overview of each of the consultation papers and to provide an opportunity to ask questions. There will also be an introductory webinar to the whole package. Find out what’s coming up, and register here: Consultation on New Zealand’s Energy Future (
