Description

This study contributes to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s development of the Electricity Demand and Generation Scenarios (EDGS). It does so by providing a forecast of potential utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) solar electricity generation in New Zealand, with accompanying detailed information such as size, location, and cost of each project. This provides an evidence base to inform energy sector and climate change policy, infrastructure providers, and the wider modelling community.
