Bioenergy facts and figures

Bioenergy use

Information on the use of bioenergy in New Zealand is available from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment quarterly report on the use of energy in New Zealand.  Annual energy use data is available here.

The Ministry undertakes future energy supply and demand modelling and produces a range of useful energy data resources and publications.

Energy use in New Zealand

The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) maintains an energy end use database.  It allows users to drill down into how energy was consumed in various ways ranging from road transport to space heating from 2012-2014. You can search across up to three years, and by a range of categories – end use, fuel, sector, region, technology, transport and building

Feedstock sources

Information on the location of feedstocks suitable for production of bioenergy and biofuels are available from New Zealand biomass resources atlas - Volume 1 lignocellulosic residues and New Zealand biomass resource atlas - Volume 2 wastes and effluents.

Information specific to each technology type is found on the relevant bioenergy topic website - wood energy, biogas, or liquid biofuels.
