dc.description.abstractIn 2008 greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector in New Zealand accounted for 19% of total emissions. Studies using the multi sector partial equilibrium model UniSyD show that vehicle costs and driving range when weighted to reflect consumer choice can result in a 38% reduction in the penetration of alternative fuelled light vehicles by 2050 and consequently is a significant factor in determining the rate of reduction in greenhouse gases. Furthermore even under a high carbon tax of US$120/t-CO2, greenhouse gas emissions in 2050 in the electricity generation and transport sectors are unlikely to be reduced to less than 8% above 1990 levels. Reductions in emissions below this level will require government policy interventions to limit the use of petroleum based transport fuels.en_NZ
