2012-06-21 - Auckland, New Zealand, June 22, 2012 – The results of the Annual New Zealand Electricity Survey 2012 have been released.
Jointly sponsored by Energy News and ABB, the survey polled representatives of New Zealand energy industries on key topics to provide a valuable snapshot of current opinion in this vital sector.
The survey was completed throughout May 2012 by 407 participants. The largest proportion of respondents was from New Zealand’s ‘gentailer’ organisations (electricity generator-retailers) but there was also significant input from professionals involved in distribution, consultancy, services and transmission, amongst the wide range represented.
Topics covered include questions about electricity supply, government policy and regulation, environmental issues, emissions trading, technology and expertise, and other issues unique to the New Zealand context.
The questions used in the survey were designed by an advisory panel of six, chaired by John Hancock from HP. Other panel members were Grant Gillard of ABB, Matt Freeman of Energy News, Murray Dyer of Simply Energy, John Small of Covec Consultants and Bruce Stubbing of Smart Power; together providing significant experience and expertise.
