Demand for coal and liquid fuel for industrial process heat map
A map of New Zealand showing demand for coal and liquid fuel for industrial process heat by region.
|Region||Natural gas demand (petajoules per annum)||Coal demand (petajoules per annum)||Liquid fuel demand (petajoules per annum)|
|Bay of Plenty||2.3||0.2||0.1|
|Nelson and Tasman||n/a||1.1||0.5|
Note: This map is indicative and reflects the best information available at the time of preparation on the 21st October 2019. It is intended as a starting point for discussion and further study. The government is currently working to improve the evidence base for process heat.
The process heat fuel demand figures and plant locations are taken from the 2016 MBIE/EECA heat plant database.
For commercial confidentiality reasons, regional totals do not include fuel demand for some large industrial users.
Heat plant locations fuel demand (petajoule per annum)
The map shows heat plant locations are scattered across New Zealand with varying levels of fuel demand. The Auckland, Waikato and Canterbury regions have the most heat plants and highest fuel demand.
Process heat demand (coal and petroleum fuels)
The map shows that the Auckland, Waikato and Canterbury regions have the most highest process heat demand.
