We run and support a range of seminars and discussion forums to share knowledge and experience. We aim to improve the quality of research and data analysis related to transport and the environment.
Te Manatū Waka is developing a research strategy to support the sector to reduce transport emissions through evidence-based decision-making. In this presentation, we provide an overview as well as an update on where things are at with the Decarbonising Transport Research Strategy project. More specifically, the presentation covers:
Te Manatū Waka also wishes to test these questions and solicit feedback with the wider transport sector. In particular, we will be looking for feedback on:

Good decision making requires best science in understanding the problem. The Emissions Reduction Plan (ERP) has a target to reduce total kilometres travelled by the light vehicle fleet by 20 per cent by 2035 through improved urban form and providing better travel options, particularly in our largest cities. This event uses recent Waka Kotahi Te Puna Taiao modelling and analysis to inform light VKT reduction.
An overview of the Health and Air Pollution in New Zealand (HAPINZ 3.0) study with Dr Gerda Kuschel and Daisy Cadigan. Learn about implications for managing vehicle emissions to improve quality of life for our tamariki, whānau and communities.
Transitioning to net zero emissions in transport by 2050 is essentially a question of platform competition. In this webinar Dr Richard Meade lay out the nature of the challenges, explaining why platform competition cannot be assumed to deliver socially-desirable outcomes, especially over relatively short time-frames (e.g. in just 28 years to 2050). The basis of this presentation is a research-based, policy-orientated and technology-agonistic discussion document Richard prepared for Vector, Powerco and First Gas in November 2021 (document available here(external link))
Decarbonising heavy transport, reducing emissions intensity of fuel and increasing public transport and freight share are all important focus areas in the Governments new Emissions Reduction Plan. Rail transport is an area where these goals all converge with innovations in fuel, infrastructure and services rapidly taking place across the world.
While electric passenger rail is already in use in our largest cities, does the emerging innovation of hydrogen-powered rail have something to offer Aotearoa on the path to net-zero?
Dr Lovegrove will give us an overview of hydrogen fuel-cell technology, it’s application to both freight and passenger rail, how it is being implemented across the globe, and the wider benefits and challenges of its introduction as a low-emissions technology.
The Emissions Group is a specialist forum that is part of the Environment hub. The Group has a technical focus and brings together researchers interested in transport emissions, such as harmful air pollutants and greenhouse gases, to help information sharing and collaboration in areas of mutual interest.
We run a range of seminars and discussion sessions with the aim of sharing knowledge and experience to help drive the quality of research and data analysis relating to transport emissions.
The hub is open to anyone interested in sharing environment-related data, information and research. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to join.
