Transcript of "The New Zealand energy story"

  1. 1. demand-sideThe New Zealand energy story ^ Sea Rotmann and Janet Stephenson
  2. 2. NZ energy supply (1 slide only!) • 61% of Total Primary Energy Supply is non- renewable (2011)* (2nd lowest in OECD after Iceland) • 77% of electricity from renewable sources (2011)* (3rd highest in OECD) • World’s largest renewable energy potential? *MED 2012 NZ Energy Data File
  3. 3. Strategy structure New Zealand energy strategy This strategy retains the four priorities and twelve areas of focus proposed in the draft strategy. These are intended to support New Zealand to make the most of its energy potential. The structure of the strategy is outlined in the following diagram. Note that some areas of focus relate to more than one priority, but for convenience are placed under one priority. AREAS OF FOCUS 3 Embrace new energy 4 2 technologies Develop renewable Competitive energy markets energy resources deliver value for money PRIORITIES 1 5- 90% renewables by 2025 Develop petroleum and Develop Oil security mineral fuel resources- 55PJ energy savings by 2015 resources Secure and and transport- 10% energy consumption reduction affordable GOAL energyper staff member in the public service 12 6 Make the most(cf 2008/09) Reduce energy- related greenhouse of our energy Reliable electricity Environmental supply- Extend MEPS/MEPL gas emissions responsibility potential 11 Best practice in 7 environmental Efficient use Better consumer management of energy information to inform for energy projects energy choices 8 10 Enhance business Warm, dry, energy competitiveness through 9 efficient homes energy efficiency An energy efficient transport system Balancing risks, constraints and opportunities
  4. 4. New Zealand energy - domestic policies overview• The Government takes the view that while we are going to require fossil fuels for the foreseeable future, there are actions we can take now to reduce our dependence on oil and facilitate a transition to alternative sources of energy.• These actions include:- New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme- Encouraging entry of biofuels and electric vehicles to the NZ market- Investment in public transport infrastructure; and- The Petroleum Action PlanMinistry of Economic Development 2011

  22. 22. 260 MW on hold• Meridian Energy is canning its planned North Bank Hydro Project on the Waitaki River for the foreseeable future, saying it is uneconomic in the current flat electricity market.• "Like other generators we recognise that the demand outlook for the next five years is probably flat to slightly declining," chief executive Mark Binns said in a statement.

  32. 32. DEMAND-SIDE INITIATIVES
  33. 33. Transpower – demand response• Action taken by consumers to reduce net demand in response to (usually) a price signal• Pilot with large users from 2008, now beta testing• Medium term target 100MW in upper North Island• Savings in new generation & grid capacity
  34. 34. Energy companies - smarter meters• Increasing installations by energy companies• Improve their knowledge of customers’ use patterns• Benefits for customers less clear so far

  52. 52. Issues for this cluster• Large houses, many appliances• Highest energy use• Little attention to efficiency or conservation• Can afford action, but don’t take it
  53. 53. Grid management issues• Increasing renewable & distributed generation• Feed-in to grid from household PV• Electric vehicles in due course?
  54. 54. DSM in policy• Low visibility of demand side in govt priorities• Lack of govt action to support targets, e.g. business efficiency, home energy advice• Poor funding and profile for EECA, dislocation in relation to supply side
  55. 55. Where would we like to be?• fast followers and adopters of best practice?• leading in renewable electricity?• improve housing stock and social norm around warmth and comfort?• but don’t go too far (like eg Norway)• less fuel poverty, more energy security• more involvement from citizens (make energy visible)?
