Energy Infrastructure and E-Mobility - New Zealand 2023

With a legislative mandate under the Zero-Carbon Act 2020 and an NZD$100 million 'Low Emission Transport Fund' for greener infrastructure, New Zealand's market for clean energy infrastructure and e-mobility presents many opportunities for German businesses wanting to break in.

New Zealand's current transport infrastructure relies on fossil fuels and needs clean, green options. These factors significantly contribute to Aotearoa having some of the highest per capita carbon emissions in the OECD. The BMWK’s Energy Export Initiative seeks to renew the existing infrastructure and reduce Aotearoa's carbon footprint.

The e-mobility initiative connects German businesses that manufacture the following with New Zealand businesses seeking to make a change:

  • Energy saving systems
  • Charging stations infrastructure
  • Smart Grids
  • Intelligent Traffic Management & Planning Systems
  • IT services for users and operators
