GasNZ Forum 2021 - Our Low Carbon Pathway

Come to the stunning Wairakei Resort Taupo on 27 & 28 October 2021 when the most important players in our sector look at the future of gas and LPG in a low carbon New Zealand.

Major change is underway today. Governments around the world are battling climate change. Our government promises to make New Zealand carbon neutral by 2050.

What does this mean for you? What does your business and your gas community need to do to prepare? Where are the opportunities for gas in a low carbon future?

Join energy sector leaders for the only dedicated New Zealand gas event in this pivotal year of change. The agenda includes presentations and interactive panel sessions.

Keep an eye out for on-line registrations so you don’t miss our star-studded interactive panel sessions.

  • Pathways to decarbonisation. Facilitated by John Kidd

            Panellists Paul Goodeve, Andy Knight and Tracey Hickman

  • Consumer behaviour effects (of the climate debate). Facilitated by Cameron Jardine

            Panellists Wendy Rayman, Ray Ferner and Greg Wallace

Covering topics that are top of mind for every switched-on gas business, with advice from all the main players, the 2021 GasNZ Forum will provide food for thought and ideas for implementation. Network with your peer gas businesses from across the energy sector and hear from key political decision-makers.
