    BEC NEWSLETTER - July 2018

    10 Jul 2018 | BusinessNZ Energy Council

    The World Energy Council is currently working on the study “International Aspects for a Power-to-X roadmap” and is reaching out to experts in the field for an interview. Experts are ideally involved in current projects, which produce resource like hydrogen, methane or ammonia and can assess and validate the findings of the study. The study identifies countries, that are attractive locations for conversion technologies and might also have the potential to build up Power-to-X export industries which could help in creating a global market for green energy resources in a future low-carbon world

    12 Apr 2018 | BusinessNZ

    The principle of supplier and technology neutrality is paramount as we consider regulatory changes. Energy systems are complex and interconnected. Government intervention to alter competitive market signals should be undertaken with caution. Policies that allow or force non-competitive outcomes (such as delivering a particular type of generation, technology, resource availability or fuel-type use) will shift investment patterns to the country’s overall detriment.

    BEC NEWSLETTER - March 2018

    Unlocking greater consumer choice and participation requires efficient price signals that fully internalise and reflect costs.

    We are delighted to bring you the October edition of the World Energy Focus, this month including New Zealand's shift in its Energy Trilemma balance. Moving away from its traditional focus on energy security of supply, which remains important, New Zealand's key challenge is how to reduce energy sector-wide carbon emissions.

The AI Forum sets out to raise the level of awareness and capabilities of AI in New Zealand.
