Support for large energy users

We partner with large businesses across New Zealand that spend more than $1 million a year on energy and have high carbon emissions. We work with them over the long term to make cost-effective energy savings and reduce carbon emissions.

For businesses and public sector agencies including government, hospitals and universities, saving energy is an effective way of showing strong leadership and influencing others.

What’s on offer

Our account managers work directly with large businesses that commit to a long-term partnership. This “energy management journey” typically starts with setting up systems to measure and manage energy. We can also support you with aspects such as:

  • Energy audits to identify opportunities
  • Establishing an energy management plan to realise opportunities
  • Energy monitoring and verification
  • Staff training.

We have partnerships with large businesses in a range of energy-intensive sectors including manufacturing and industry, local government, hospitals and airports.
