Gas infrastructure in New Zealand: where to from here?

Planning for the future can be tricky, especially in the complex world of gas infrastructure where there is drive to transition away from natural gas.

To help overcome this challenge in New Zealand, farrierswier consultants Eli Grace-Webb and Geoff Swier have been chairing a working group consisting of gas infrastructure businesses, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, the Commerce Commission, the Electricity Authority, and the Major Gas Users Group.

With a focus on key policy and regulatory questions facing gas infrastructure, the working group has today released a Findings Report that makes key recommendations about how to take the transition forward in New Zealand.
