    Energy infrastructure assets are designed and built to last for decades. These assets do not exist and function in a vacuum.

    BusinessNZ Energy Council (BEC) was pleased to have the opportunity to provide a submission to the Electricity Price Review Panel on its options paper, published on 20 February 2019. Overall, we support the Panel putting consumers at the heart of the electricity price review. The options paper outlines the importance for electricity prices to be fair and affordable for consumers, as well as efficient or competitive. We recognise that even with cost reflective, efficient prices, outcomes can emerge that are undesirable for some consumer groups. The full submission is now available on our webpage.
