Webinar: The Electrification of our Economy: What Will It Take?

  • 30 Jun 2020
  • 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
  • Zoom Webinar

Decarbonising our economy will invariably depend on us electrifying major parts of our economy such as transport and industrial processes (process heat). Transpower forecasts that our energy will shift from being 25% electrical today to 60% by 2050, which will require significant electricity generation and transmission investment not seen in New Zealand in over a generation. 

Collective action is needed now. New Zealand will need as much new generation in the next 15 years as it has delivered over the last 40 years. The capacity of the national transmission grid will have to expand to meet the demand. Transpower has outlined a path to achievement in its latest report Whakamana i Te Mauri Hiko – Empowering our Energy Future.

Join this webinar to hear from Hon Dr Megan Woods (Minister of Energy and Resources), Alison Andrew (Chief Executive, Transpower), Marc England (Chief Executive, Genesis Energy), Dr Rod Carr (Chairperson, Climate Change Commission), and Paul Blair (CEO, Infrastructure NZ).
