Purpose of collection

This survey is used to collect statistics about the energy used by all types of New Zealand businesses, in the primary, industrial, trade, and services sectors. Organisations provide information on how much energy they use, which allows Stats NZ to publish data at industry and national levels for different energy types. The energy types include electricity, petrol, diesel, coal, natural gas, and renewable energy.

Method of collection/Data provider

The survey was posted out in April each year, with a reference period of the last financial year for which the business had results available in May.
The Energy Use Survey has been designed as a rolling survey: different industry groupings (ANZSIC06) are surveyed every year, with the objective that the whole economy is covered in three years.
