Energy is an essential element of any contemporary society and economy. Virtually all everyday activities and productive processes involve energy in one form or another. Internationally, economies are extremely reliant on energy, especially in the form of non-renewable oil-based fuels, such as petrol and diesel.
Questions on where the available energy is being used, and how efficiently it is being used are becoming increasingly important, as governments plan their energy futures. The focus of recent strategies is on tackling carbon emissions by increasing the uptake of low-emission technologies, such as electricity generation from renewable resources.
This report presents measures of energy use (in petajoules) and economic performance (in constant price GDP) at a national and industry level. The information presented in this report identifies where and how efficiently energy is being used in New Zealand’s economy.
