Living Energy was established in 2003 with the sole purpose of providing cost-effective wood-derived heat to industrial, commercial and public sector clients. Since then we have supplied/installed 30 wood boilers across New Zealand and Australia, totaling around 42,000kW, saving our clients hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention avoiding thousands of tonnes of CO2 emissions. 

More recently Living Energy has partnered-up to supply fit-for-purpose fuel storage solutions (such as the Toploader – see to wood boiler clients in Australia and New Zealand.  Fuel storage is a specialist area where we can leverage our own hands-on experience gained from implementing so many projects, combining these with learnings from many more real-life projects.

Managing Director Rob Mallinson is a founding Board Member of the Bioenergy Association ( and held the position of Chairman for over 7 years, and is currently the convener of the associations Wood Energy Interest Group. He has an expert knowledge of the factors that impact on the viability of (successful) wood boiler projects, and combines this expertise with in-depth knowledge of the availability of wood-fuel resources across Australasia. This allows any wood-energy opportunity to be quickly distilled down to its most important facets, producing succinct and cost-effective feasibility studies that save the client time and money.
