Electricity consumption in New Zealand vs OECD average
1990–2014, megawatt hours per capita
Average consumption numbers are calculated from U.S. Census Bureau data on international population.
Price comparisons between countries are presented on a purchasing power parity (PPP) basis. New Zealand liquid fuel prices are at the lower end of the OECD range, due to the relatively low taxes. The New Zealand diesel tax component does not include Road User Charges (RUCs). Residential natural gas prices should be treated as indicative only, as tariffs for residential gas in New Zealand generally include high fixed charges.
Consumption per person presented for electricity, oil and natural gas.
