New Zealand Energy In Brief released

The Ministry of Economic Development today released the third edition of New Zealand Energy in Brief, which presents a range of energy-related information in an accessible and easy-to-use format.

Energy in Brief is a concise compilation of key energy data. It includes an overview of energy supply and demand, and information on all of New Zealand’s major energy sources and greenhouse gas emissions. It also provides energy comparisons with New Zealand’s major trading partners and other selected countries.

Information is presented as full colour charts with annual data up to the end of the 2007 calendar year. Data is sourced from the latest editions of the Energy Data File and Energy Greenhouse Gas Emissions Report. The latter was released last week.

This publication is available in both hard copy and electronic form. One hard copy is available free with additional copies at $10 each excluding GST and postage. For a hard copy, please send a request to info[at] Electronic copies can be downloaded at:
