New Zealand pro­duced over 70% of its elec­tric­ity from re­new­able re­sources - ap­prox­i­mately 60% from hy­dro, 4% wind and 10% geo­ther­mal.*

We per­form well by world stan­dards and rank the third high­est in the OECD for re­new­ables after Ice­land and Norway.

Most of our hy­dro power is gen­er­ated via run-ofriver and canal projects with nat­u­ral stor­age lakes

Hy­dro is the corners­tone of gen­er­a­tion, but re­sources and ar­eas for de­vel­op­ment are lim­ited in New Zealand, that's why wind and geo­ther­mal are be­ing ex­plored and are grow­ing in their con­tri­bu­tion to our en­ergy needs.

Wind in­te­grates ex­tremely well with our hy­dro stor­age in that when the wind blows we can use the en­ergy pro­duced that helps to con­serve the wa­ter in our stor­age lakes.
