Another renewable energy record broken

The proportion of renewable energy used in New Zealand continues to reach record levels, Energy and Resources Minister Simon Bridges says.

The finding was released today in the annual Energy in New Zealand report, which highlights key trends in energy supply, demand and pricing for the 2015 calendar year.

The report shows that renewable energy provided 40.1 per cent of New Zealand’s total primary energy supply in 2015.

 “This is a record high, placing us third in the world, behind other renewable superpowers Iceland and Norway,” Mr Bridges says.
