Energy hardship expert panel and reference group

Government has agreed to establish an Energy Hardship Expert Panel to recommend policy priorities and actions to alleviate energy hardship in New Zealand.

Government is also establishing an Energy Hardship Reference Group to provide a forum to share information and encourage coordination across industry, NGOs and government agencies.

Work continues on drafting the terms of reference, membership and establishment process. A full summary is available on the Electricity Price Review webpage.

More information about these groups will be available when membership has been finalised in early 2021.
