Completed in 2013 the Shaping our Future Energy Report focuses on the areas of greatest influence on our standard of living – Stationary Energy and Transport Energy. Stationary Energy is what we use in buildings – mostly electricity in NZ but also wood fuels and natural gas. Transport Energy, which is used for daily commuting and to support the wider movement of people and goods into the district. Transport energy is almost exclusively from fossil fuels. The final report includes key recommendations and a long term vision for energy in our district.
