With this adapter can I connect an Apple Thunderbolt Display to a new MacBook Pro (USB-C) and power the laptop through the same connection?

I can confirm this adapter will not power the new MacBook Pro's. However all the usb and ethernet ports functionality works.

No. The Thunderbolt Display provides power through a MagSafe connector; this adapter does not have a MagSafe connector, and there is no way to get one on the new MacBook Pro.

You can connect for video, USB 3, Gigabit Ethernet, and Thunderbolt extension. You can't charge with the Dusplay.

Possibly, but you're better off connecting another USB-C cable for power as Thunderbolt 1 and 2 don't deliver the power the MacBook Pro needs.
