NIWA scientists maintain a web-based database containing details of all New Zealand's energy assets.
This Google Maps-based database enables users to locate all New Zealand's major energy generators, both non-renewable and renewable. The database is searchable and is also interactive, allowing regular updating if new assets come onstream.
NIWA is one of three CRIs, and CRL Energy, collaborating in a major project, 'EnergyScape', which aims to assess current energy resources and future energy-production potential from both renewable and non-renewable resources in New Zealand.
We have also produced two posters showing New Zealand's energy assets, which are available via the NIWA website.
