Gas is energising our future
We are excited about new renewable and zero carbon gas energies like hydrogen gas and biogas. These new gases are are on their way and our gas network is 90% ready to distribute them now! Gas remains a great choice now and into Aotearoa's lower carbon future.
We think that gas will still be available to power your home's hot water, heating and cooking needs well into the future. That gas may be blended with hydrogen gas or biofuels for lower carbon option, or may even be 100% zero carbon. Regardless, gas energy will remain steady and reliable, providing your home with comfort, control and convenience.
Did you know that the gas pipes that connect your home to our network, are probably already our hydrogen gas compatible yellow ones? Making your neighbourhood, along with all our new sub-divisions carbon zero ready now!
Until these new gases are available, you can be confident that any new gas appliance you install today will continue to run on gas until its end of life, around 15-20 years away. Gas remains a great choice to power your home.
