New Zealand leads the world with 80% renewables, and a big part of the growth in renewables over the last decade has been Mercury’s investment in geothermal generation in partnership with Maori landowners.
Mercury is one of the world’s largest geothermal power station owners following the successful completion of three major geothermal power stations between 2008 and 2013 – Kawerau, Ngā Awa Pūrua and Ngātamariki. The combined output of electricity from these stations, which normally run 24/7, provides enough renewable electricity to supply 330,000 New Zealand homes (2800 GWh).
$1.4b invested in reliable base-load geothermal since 2008
330,000 HOMES CAN BE POWERED BY 3 STATIONS WITH 24HR GENERATION.
