Just Transition Clean Energy Workstream
As part of the Green Energy Portfolio, Murihiku Regeneration is leading the Just Transition Clean Energy Workstream.
A working group has been established to bring together interested regional and national partners, and input from Murihiku Hapū, to develop and support an approach which will help enable the transition away from fossil fuels.
A key output of this work will be identifying what projects, training, investments and policy changes will support Southland’s clean energy ambitions. The working group will also be responsible for identifying how local clean energy ambitions interact with the national energy system.
Murihiku Regeneration will report back to the EOG on the first stage of this work in August 2022. Following this report back, Murihiku Regeneration will work with project partners to identify how the region can realise these ambitions.
