Energy security

Unleashing the power of forestry to fuel New Zealand from renewable resources

  • Outcome area

    Increase renewable energy production and energy security by growing New Zealand’s ability to produce sustainable bioenergy and liquid biofuel products
  • So, to help increase New Zealand’s energy security through expanded utilisation of forest biomass for energy, we are working with government, forest and land owners, industrial manufacturers, wood processors, energy companies and commercial consumers of transport fuels.

    Our science focusses on:

    - Wood-based replacements for transport biofuels and industrial energy
    - Identifying, adopting and adapting the best international technologies and building the capability for large-scale uptake and deployment.
