The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) has updated the Energy End Use Database which shows how New Zealanders use energy and gives a snapshot of how energy use is changing.
EECA's Evaluation and Technical Manager, Brian Fitzgerald, said the updated database will provide local authorities, government, and the private sector with energy data to support development of New Zealand's response to energy security, climate change, and business productivity.
'Database users will be able to find the answers to detailed questions covering energy use by sectors, technologies, in buildings, and in transport. For example, councils can interrogate this database to help develop their district energy plans, or consultants can assess energy use by fuel type and industry sector to help inform analysis and scenario modelling.'
The Energy End Use Database draws information from a number of sources including the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment's Energy in NZ and Statistics New Zealand's NZ Energy Use Survey.
