The Interim Climate Change Committee (ICCC) will present its report to Government on transitioning New Zealand to 100% renewable electricity by 2035 this month.

Research Fellow Matt Burgess is the author of our recent research report Switched On! Achieving a green, affordable and reliable energy future. He says that New Zealand is well placed to increase the share of renewable electricity from its current level of 83% to 95% over the next 20 years even without further government intervention.

However, the report explains why replacing the last 5% with renewable sources would be a needlessly expensive policy.

Matt Burgess discusses on TVNZ Breakfast the Government's 100% renewables policy in the context of the upcoming ICCC report.
