We're moving Aotearoa towards a sustainable energy system that supports the wellbeing of current and future generations.


Energy in New Zealand

About 40% of New Zealand's total greenhouse gas emissions come from our energy use.

The choices we make about how we use energy in our everyday lives and businesses have an impact. Our opportunity is to build out a strong and stable energy system by prioritising energy efficiency, energy conservation and the use of renewable energy sources.

With clean and clever energy we can achieve emissions reductions, lower energy costs, make our homes warmer and healthier, and contribute to a reliable and resilient grid.
