Low Carbon Circular Economy
The wider Bay of Plenty is rich in energy resources with ready access to geothermal, biomass and solar energy options, giving the region a national and international advantage. Our energy is available, accessible, clean and renewable, and clearly fits with the New Zealand Government’s renewable energy targets.
Bay of Connections’ work is focused on facilitating new business growth and employment opportunities in renewable and sustainable energy. We are looking at how a transition to a low carbon and circular economy will support the region’s infrastructure, as well as Māori economic development.
The Energy Strategy focuses on creating wealth and wellbeing through renewable and sustainable energy in the region by facilitating new business growth opportunities and employment.
