Technical Reference Group

A Technical Reference Group is being established to provide the NZ Battery Project team with independent technical expertise, sector knowledge and advice on the relevant social, mātauranga Māori and environmental issues relevant to individual options.

Selection process

Members will be selected on what they can personally bring to the work of the Group, as well as the role of the organisation they represent. In particular, we are looking for people who have a good understanding of issues relating to the social, mātauranga Māori and environmental considerations of developing renewable options for dry year security.

More details about the Group’s purpose, skill sets and requirements are outlined in the draft Terms of Reference. These will be the subject of discussion and agreement at the first meeting in Wellington and online. Due to the high number of nominations, we expect Group members to be announced in March 2021.
