First Gas and Powerco commissioned Vivid Economics to explore the potential scenarios for future use of the gas infrastructure, as New Zealand moves to a low-carbon economy. The report was launched today, and explores three different scenarios – a diversified energy mix, a green gas (hydrogen and/or biogas) option and an all-electric future – and the impact of these scenarios on gas infrastructure use and affordability. Vivid Economics’ report finds that there are many uncertainties in New Zealand’s changing policy environment and it is too early to pick one preferred energy source for a low-carbon economy.
