BMI View:

New Zealand's power market is very well developed. Hydropower plants account for more than half of installed capacity and the country also makes extensive use of wind, geothermal and solar power. Thermal power is declining in importance as New Zealand phases out ageing coal-fired power plants and instead focuses new investment on the renewables sector. While New Zealand's renewable energy targets mean we do expect to see some growth in the sector over the coming years, the lack of consumption growth and limited incentives mean there are only a few major projects currently in the pipeline.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends


- We are maintaining our forecasts for New Zealand's power sector this quarter. Total generation is forecast to increase from 42.8TWh in 2016 to 45.9TWh in 2025. Over half of generation is sourced from hydropower and renewables will see its share of generation increase from 23.7% to 28.0%.

- Mighty River Power relaunched as Mercury in July 2016. The group reported a net profit of NZD160mn in the 12 months to June 2016, while revenue fell 7.0% to NZD1.56bn. Mercury's energy is now 100.0% sourced from renewables - a mix of hydropower (nine stations) and geothermal (five stations).

- Trustpower has put forward proposals to demerger and create two independent publicly listed companies: Tilt Renewables will hold Australian and New Zealand wind farms and wind and solar development projects and New Trustpower which will operate the company's hydropower assets in Australia and New Zealand and the retail business in New Zealand.
