Energy Sector Breakdown

The energy sector produced 31,647.91 Gg CO2 equivalent in 2004 and represented 42.4 percent of New Zealand's total greenhouse gas emissions. Emissions from the energy sector are now 33.8 percent above the 1990 baseline value of 23,655.15 Gg CO2 equivalent (Figure 3.1.1). The sources contributing most to this increase since 1990 are emissions from "road transportation" (an increase of 62.7 percent) and public electricity and heat production (an increase of 73.6 percent) subcategories. Emissions from the "manufacture of solid fuels and other energy industries" subcategory have decreased by 1482.58 Gg CO2 equivalent (83.4 percent) from 1990, mainly due to the ceasing of synthetic petrol production in 1997.
