Energy - Energy use type by industry in Terajoules 2008–2017

Stats NZ


Calorific value: The energy contained in a fuel, determined by measuring the heat produced by the complete combustion of a specified quantity of the fuel. Statistics NZ converted all the different energy types into terajoules (TJ) to make them easily comparable.
Enterprise: A unit or business entity operating in New Zealand. It can be a company, partnership, trust, estate, incorporated society, producer board, local or central government organisation, voluntary organisation, or self-employed individual.
Joule (J): A unit for measuring energy. The main unit we use in this release is the terajoule (TJ). One terajoule is approximately equal to the total electricity used by 35 households in one year.

Limitations of the data

Some values are suppressed due to confidentiality rules.

Changes to data collection/processing

From 2016, the year in the release title reflects the year in which the survey was run.
This is a change from previous years. For example, when the survey was run in 2015, the data was published as 2014 data.
Therefore there is no gap in the annual series.
