Consultation on Advancing New Zealand’s Energy Transition

Cover of Consultation on Advancing New Zealand’s Energy Transition, October 2023

The CTU strongly supports the development of a proactive strategy that delivers a just transition to a sustainable, affordable, and resilient energy system. The future wellbeing and prosperity of New Zealand workers, and the country at large, will be significantly affected by how successfully we manage this transition.  

The five papers released by MBIE in the current consultation cover a wide range of issues and proposals. Rather than submitting individually on these papers, the CTU’s submission focuses on a set of important issues that we think MBIE’s current proposals do not sufficiently address: (1) energy security; (2) the just transition; (3) workforce development implications; (4) the issue of energy poverty; and (5) the investment required for the energy transition.
