New Zealand

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, New Zealand has committed at least USD 2.57 billion to supporting different energy types through new or amended policies, according to official government sources and other publicly available information. These public money commitments include:

  • At least USD 1.05 billion for unconditional fossil fuels through 13 policies (12 quantified and 1 unquantified)
  • At least USD 89.17 million for conditional fossil fuels through 7 policies (7 quantified)
  • At least USD 356.74 million for unconditional clean energy through 21 policies (20 quantified and 1 unquantified)
  • At least USD 1.04 billion for conditional clean energy through 12 policies (12 quantified)
  • At least USD 23.99 million for other energy through 3 policies (1 quantified and 2 unquantified)

By energy type, New Zealand committed at least USD 1.09 billion to oil and gas (at least USD 1.04 billion to unconditional oil and gas and at least USD 55.12 million to conditional oil and gas).

In addition, no public money commitments identified for coal.

Further, no public money commitments identified for hydrogen based on fossil fuels.

Finally, no public money commitments identified for multiple fossil fuels.

A considerably larger amount of public money committed to supporting the economy and people of New Zealand through monetary and fiscal policies in response to the crisis may also benefit different elements of the energy sector. However, these values are not available from official legislation and statements and therefore are not included in the database. Meanwhile, in addition to monetary and fiscal measures, the database lists other policies and regulations that can also provide benefits to producers and consumers of different energy types.

These public money commitments are additional to many other government policies that had existed to support different energy types before the COVID19 pandemic.

NZD 70 million 70000000 The GIDI Fund is a partnership between Government and business to accelerate the decarbonisation of industrial process heat and contribute to the COVID-19 recovery by stimulating the domestic economy and supporting employment. Process heat makes up around a third of New Zealand’s overall energy use, and 60% of process heat is fossil-fuelled, mainly by gas and coal. EECA (The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority) administers the GIDI Fund on behalf of the Government through a contestable process that will see $69M of capital grants co-investment made available to support good projects. The Fund is available to New Zealand-based private sector businesses who have committed to decarbonising their business and industrial processes, where Government co-investment will help remove barriers to accelerating their decarbonisation goals.

The name NZ Battery refers to the manner in which the intended solution will provide stored energy for the New Zealand electricity system in an analogous manner to a battery. The first phase will evaluate the viability of pumped hydro and consider this solution against alternative methods to resolve New Zealand’s dry year electricity storage problem in order to achieve 100% renewable electricity and help to decarbonise the wider energy system. It will comprise a detailed investigation of the Lake Onslow pumped hydro project, which the Interim Climate Change Committee (ICCC) referenced in its electricity report and recommended for further investigation. Other smaller pumped storage proposals will also be considered as will alternative technology approaches. Following rigorous assessment of all options, a feasibility study will be developed for the preferred option or options.

Under the terms of the agreement the Government will provide a standby loan facility (‘the facility”) of up $900 million to support the airline as it manages the unprecedented impact of the Covid-19 outbreak on its business. The facility will provide Air New Zealand with the ability to draw down on funds should its cash reserves drop below a minimum threshold, providing additional funds if cash reserves are not at a satisfactory level. The facility was negotiated on an arms’ length basis, with each party having been independently advised. The facility will be provided in two tranches – a tranche of $600,000,000 with an effective interest rate initially expected to be between 7% and 8% per annum and a second tranche of $300,000,000 with an effective interest rate initially expected to be in the order of 9% per annum. The facility will be available for a period of 24 months. The effective interest rates on both tranches will step-up by 1% if the facility remains after 12 months. This debt funding will be used to support the airline’s business operations as it manages the implications of various government border restrictions and substantial reductions in travel demand.
