About New Zealand

New Zealand has proposed to phase out coal completely by 2030 and has no coal plants under construction or in planning. New Zealand relies heavily on hydro to meet most of its power needs. New Zealand is a small coal producer and consumer. In 2019, it produced 3 million tonnes. New Zealand coal resources are located mainly in the Waikato and Taranaki regions of the North Island, and the West Coast, Otago and Southland regions of the South Island. New Zealand is a member of the Powering Past Coal Alliance (PPCA), which is dedicated to phasing out coal power plants in OECD countries by 2030 and globally before 2050. New Zealand has pledged to be carbon-neutral by 2050.
