Energy Resources Aotearoa

Energy Resources Aotearoa is New Zealand’s peak energy advocacy organisation

We represent participants from right across the energy system, providing a strategic sector perspective on energy issues and their adjacent portfolios. Our purpose is to enable constructive collaboration to bring coherence across the energy sector through and beyond New Zealand’s journey to net zero carbon emissions by 2050. 

Our members help create vibrant, prosperous and sustainable communities. Their energy drives jobs and exports, heats our homes, as well as earns taxes and royalties to pay for public services. The best energy system is balanced: affordable, reliable and sustainable. We are constructively supporting balanced energy choices to benefit all New Zealanders as we journey to a lower emissions world. We are partnering with the Government and other key players to help make this a reality. We care about our country, our people, our natural environment and we want the best for New Zealand.

We are determined to be a part of the solution and help lead the way, for the good of all New Zealanders. That’s why our name is Energy Resources Aotearoa.
