Further to the earlier Transpower consultation on variations to EDGS 2019, we sought additional feedback from all generation investors on the supply side generation scenarios, specifically around new wind and solar generation.
The 2020-21 consultation on variations to EDGS provided enough certainty on demand side scenarios. However, to produce accurate predications we sought further information on the supply side. We specifically sought input on how to prioritise potential new wind and solar generation investment. Because of the similarities between the various potential wind and solar projects in New Zealand, it is difficult to select regions to enable first for this type of new generation.
