Future Transport Fuels
Transport affects all of us. Over 50% of New Zealand’s fossil fuel use is in transport, and while we are lucky to have considerable room to expand our clean electricity generation to service Electric Vehicles (EVs), batteries have their limitations when it comes to long haul land, sea, and air.

Aotearoa’s physical isolation makes us particularly exposed in sea and air. Simon will outline the main future fuel options: reducing emissions from fossil fuels, clean hydrogen, better batteries and charging, and biofuels – gas and liquid. But none of these options are clear cut in New Zealand, and all will probably cost more.

Simon will share what we need to be doing now to help move forward in the various modes – highlighting often overlooked and very promising opportunities from the demand side.
