The Government is consulting on a paper, A Vision for Hydrogen in New Zealand. We want to know your views on the paper so that we can create a submission to Government. This will inform the Government’s ongoing discussion on clean energy.
We know the Government wants feedback on the following:
- What are the challenges and opportunities for using hydrogen for storage and distribution?
- What is the role of Government in developing the complementary role of electricity and hydrogen? What are the challenges and opportunities for this complementary role?
- What is the role of the Government in supporting hydrogen use for the transport sector? What are the challenges and opportunities for using hydrogen in the transport sector?
- What is the role of the Government in encouraging the use of hydrogen for industrial processes, including process heat supply? What are the challenges and opportunities for using hydrogen for industrial processes?
- What is the role of Government in encouraging hydrogen uptake for the decarbonisation of our natural gas uses? What are the challenges or opportunities to decarbonisation?
- What is the role of the Government in producing hydrogen in sufficient volume for export? What are the challenges or opportunities to producing sufficient hydrogen volume for export?
Finally, the Government is interested to understand Māori perspectives on hydrogen opportunities and how or if this will support Māori aspiration for social and economic development.
If you have feedback on these questions, please get in touch with Jodi Caughley (Policy and Projects Lead).
Submit your feedback to us by Friday 18 October or submit individually to the Government through the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment.
