  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    MBIE, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, is responsible for the energy sector policy.

    The Ministry for the Environment takes care of New Zealand's climate change programme and is also involved in policy directives for renewable energy and electricity...

  • Energy Supply

    Resources:

    New Zealand has some gas and coal resources: reserves of 51 bcm for natural gas and 258 Mt for coal (end of 2016). Oil reserves are more limited (11 Mt).

  • Energy Prices

    Oil:

    In 2017 the price of gasoline was US$1.46/l and the price of diesel US$0.83/l. Gasoline prices decreased by 3%/year between 2011 and 2014, while diesel prices stayed stable. Since then, prices of both fuels have dropped significantly, following global oil prices (by about 25% for gasoline and...

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita is high, at 4.4 toe and around 8 400 kWh for electricity in 2016.

    Between 2010 and 2015, energy consumption has been increasing by 2.4%/year, reaching 21 Mtoe. It remained relatively stable in 2016.
