Consumer Energy Options in New Zealand - 2016 Update by Simon Coates - Released
Simon Coates of Concept Consulting presented the updated Consumer Energy Options Report during a lunchtime seminar held at Gas Industry Co on Friday 29 April 2016.
The updated Consumer Energy Options Report and the presentation slides are available below.
Gas continues to provide a competitive energy choice for home energy and industrial heat applications, according to an updated review of consumer energy options.
The report, Consumer Energy Options in New Zealand – 2016 Update, by Concept Consulting was commissioned by Gas Industry Co and is aimed at providing updated and authoritative information that can be used by a range of private and public sector players in guiding consumer energy decision-making. It covers both households and industrial heating, and reflects on issues for gas and LPG as carbon fuels.
It is important that the positioning of gas in the energy supply mix is updated in the context of increasingly competitive energy markets, a resulting array of energy options for consumers, climate change concerns, the move towards greater use of renewable energy, and fuel and technology developments.
The report analyses the relative merits of fuel/technology options for water heating, space heating, and industrial process heat, and looks at both cost and non-price attributes. Accordingly, it will be of interest to appliance manufacturers and retailers, gasfitters, wholesalers, retailers and distributors – in helping to inform their own gas promotions – as much as it will be to consumers.
