Castalia wrote a White Pater on the role of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) in the power system of the future.

MBIE was seeking consultants to provide an in-depth analysis of the actions necessary to catalyze investment in hydrogen. Castalia delivered detailed modelling and analysis for the supply, demand, and distribution of hydrogen in New Zealand and potential export markets. We prepared a high-level, user-friendly online modelling tool to enable stakeholders to understand implications for hydrogen based on their own assumptions.
