Our energy, our future

We’re New Zealand’s home of energy

For more than 100 years, Taranaki has been the home of energy in Aotearoa, leading the way in energy innovation and production. We supply 100% of New Zealand’s natural gas supply to homes and industries right across the country, keeping the lights on and your feet warm even in the coldest of winters. You could say, we’re energy experts - from traditional energy production, natural gas, and methanol production, to low-emissions energy tech, hydrogen, and wind. We’re leading the way in energy production – and looking for unique and innovative ways to support New Zealand’s transition to a low-emissions future.

Leading the way in low-emissions energy

Our topography and geology allow for a plentiful supply of natural gas, and through exploration and production, and a North Island-wide distribution system, we’ve been able to supply a steady flow of energy across Aotearoa while significantly reducing emissions from traditional energy sources such as coal.

We continue to look to the future as we transition to a low carbon emissions future and net-zero. We’re working collaboratively with industry, local government, community, business and education to build a roadmap to 2050. We’re future-proofing our environment for generations to come and have been busy trialing, testing, and developing solutions to solve the energy challenges of tomorrow, today, with some of the smartest minds in the industry.

We’re building a diversified energy landscape, investigating and investing in innovative energy solutions to support Aotearoa for years to come, and leveraging our existing assets and infrastructure to think big – like exploring if we can use our existing gas network to distribute hydrogen.
