About the Utilities Industry in New Zealand

Power and utilities fuel New Zealand’s economic expansion through resources such as oil, gas, electricity, coal and services such as waste management.


The way we produce and manage utilities has changed considerably compared to previous decades. As advances in technology and engineering are implemented here, the utilities industry is being increasingly influenced by changes in technology, manufacturing and government policies.


Demands upon utilities due to population growth means that those in the sector are always expanding and seeking innovative solutions to keep pace with other developed nations, while bearing in mind the challenges and opportunities presented by climate change.


We derive 82% of our electricity from renewable resources, making New Zealand one of the greenest countries in the world in terms of electricity generation.


The utilities industry in New Zealand shares challenges faced by the sector internationally: minimizing environmental impact, maintaining a secure, reliable infrastructure, and keeping consumer costs low.
