From Morning Report, 8:41 am on 27 November 2018

A $1 billion hydrogen power plant will be built in Taranaki. A hydrogen energy plant produces energy from natural gas - but without any carbon emissions. The US-based company, 8 Rivers said the New Zealand government's recent law change banning new offshore oil and gas exploration hadn't impacted its decision to build the plant.
