BEC ENERGY SCENARIOS: TIMES-NZ 2.0

EECA, BusinessNZ Energy Council, businesses, academia and government have prepared two potential scenarios of New Zealand’s energy future to 2060.



The Project

How do you tell the story of the future? What if most Kiwis chose to see climate change as the most important problem to solve? What would happen if they invested now in new technologies and led the world in decarbonising the economy?

As we transition to a net-zero carbon economy by 2050, policy makers, investors and consumers are searching for tools to help them manage risks and seize opportunities. This project will help New Zealanders think about our energy future and the range of trade-offs and choices we might face.

The New Zealand Energy Scenarios TIMES-NZ 2.0 was developed in partnership with EECA, BEC and PSI. We hope this work will encourage discussion about where we are now and where we are heading to get the best outcomes for individuals, businesses and society as a whole.
