Energy and Resources Minister Gerry Brownlee today released a Draft New Zealand Energy Strategy (NZES) and Draft New Zealand Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy (NZEECS) for public consultation.

“The NZES sets the strategic direction for the energy sector and the role energy will play in the New Zealand economy.  The government’s vision is for the energy sector to maximise its contribution to the economy,” Mr Brownlee said.
