We are looking to engage consultant(s) to assist the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) to undertake analysis and modelling to support a New Zealand roadmap for hydrogen. Timeframes for delivery for this project are a start in March 2020 with completion by end of May to early June 2020.
A second phase, which is not covered by this RFQ, will be to extend any modelling undertaken in this RFQ (as needed) and develop this work into a full roadmap. This later RFQ is expected to be issued around mid-2020.
The key skills that we are seeking in this RFQ are the ability to carry out analyses and modelling pertaining to the following key questions, and others that may arise during the course of the procurement.
The key modelling task is to analyse the implications of different scenarios of hydrogen development across a range of scenarios from the status quo to the establishment of large-scale domestic hydrogen use and international export. Key modelling issues that will need to be analysed include, but are not limited to:
• What are the environmental and resource implications of hydrogen development in New Zealand, particularly the effects on freshwater supply
• What different economic opportunities arise from different levels of hydrogen development, including exports, and
• What are the effects that may arise in other parts of the energy market, with a focus on electricity price, for hydrogen development.
The above are not an exclusive list and other issues can be addressed in the full roadmap RFQ later. MBIE will work with the supplier to identify which of the key issues above can be considered in this RFQ, and identify any key issues omitted. MBIE will agree a timeline and fee with the supplier for the delivery of the modelling work that is agreed for this RFQ.
