To meet the growing demand for renewable energy and to help reduce emissions from energy use, we need more energy that users can be confident is from renewable sources. Energy users need ways to validate claims about the content of their goods and services, particularly in exports.
Energy certification is emerging as a tool to support both needs, allowing transparency around the types of energy available and being used throughout New Zealand.
Tim Middlehurst, Chief Executive of Certified Energy, will outline the challenges and opportunities that energy certification brings, where certificates fit in international standards for reducing emissions, and the role certification can play in the transition to renewable energy.
Brian Cox, Executive Officer at Bioenergy Association of New Zealand will share his work leading industry adoption of standards for gaseous, liquid and solid biofuels. He will talk about recent developments and what role certificates could play in promoting bioenergy, and allowing blends to play a part in the transition.
Learn about how certification:
Gives consumers greater confidence about the impact of their energy use
Enables producers to describe the energy impact of their goods and services
How certificates are being used today, and recognised internationally
The green gas standard that is currently under development
Existing and emerging issues in biofuels and their certification
The discussion will begin promptly at 12pm. Following the discussion there will be a light lunch, and an opportunity to network with representatives from across the energy sector.
An online option is available for those who are unable to attend in person.
