  • Submission to MED on the draft NZ Energy Strategy (NZES) and NZ Energy Efficiency and Consevation Strategy (NZEECS) (Sept 2010) - While BANZ supports the strategies, we believe that the policies and principles underlining the strategies and actions must be further developed. The NZES doc sets out an appropriate framework for the sector putting a balance on supply and demand and incorporates all the different facets of energy. It is a sound base document from which an energy and efficiency and renewables strategy could be developed.
  • Oral submission - to Board of Inquiry on behalf of BANZ on the proposal for a NPS for Renewable Electricity Generation (July 2009) - In summary BANZ submits general support for a NPS for renewable electricity generation; requests that the policy statement be widened to cover all forms of renewable energy (incl all biomass conversion techs) not just elec; alternatives to a NPS are not supported; Policy 3 reversibility aspects of renewable energy projects are not support.
