The Ministry for the Environment and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment have undertaken an evaluation of the effectiveness of the National Policy Statement for Renewable Electricity Generation (NPS-REG) by looking at how councils across the country have given effect to the NPS-REG.

The report identifies areas that stakeholders think could be improved upon to ensure a more consistent approach to planning for and considering resource consents on renewable electricity generation.
