Energy Group

Across our Earth, electricity powers the realities of daily life. In Aotearoa, the energy sector is responsible for 40% of our greenhouse gas emissions – 17% of this is transport, 8.5% in manufacturing and construction, 6% is electricity generation, and 7% is other energy sources.

Our group focuses on decreasing the 6% due to electricity generation and we do this by working towards:

  • Opportunities for change in energy supply and consumption for individuals, households, workplaces, councils, and our region as a whole
  • Building diversity of supply
  • Supply resilience and creation
  • Conversion from fossil energy to sustainable energy sources
  • Recognizing the links to transport and urban development, and the capacity to join microgrids.

We work individually and collectively on projects and initiatives and hold monthly group Zoom meetings to stay coordinated in our efforts.

Anyone keen to learn more or join is welcome to get in touch.

The Climate Action Book

The Nelson Tasman Climate Forum offers this plan for every citizen of our region — for individuals, households, businesses, farmers, schools and colleges, religious organisations, councils and iwi. We also hope to help other parts of Aotearoa to develop their own Climate Action Plans and contribute to the development of Climate Action Plans around the world.
