Powering up Aotearoa

Aotearoa has a world-leading electricity system that is affordable, secure, reliable and renewable. At present around 40% of our primary energy and 85% of our electricity is from renewable sources, the third highest level in the OECD. The foundations for this were laid by WSP over the last 150 years. Our people investigated, designed, built and maintained the dams, schemes and stations that have delivered economic expansion and improved living conditions through nationwide access to renewable electricity. We continue this today as our experts look at how we’ll power our future in a way that meets changing needs and resources.
