Ms Woods last month announced terms of reference for the review, saying residential electricity prices had risen by about 50 per cent since 2000 but the price for businesses had remained flat.

"We want to find out why that is," she said.

The review will investigate the entire market, from generation through transmission and distribution, to retail.

The panel members are mostly energy sector experts and it includes Consumer NZ chief executive Sue Chetwin.
