Tracking our progress

We have a large investment programme underway! Here are some of our current and recently completed major projects.
The way electricity prices are set is changing, to make them fairer and easier to understand as well as supporting New Zealand’s drive towards electrification and decarbonisation.
We're committed to finding innovative solutions for the future management of our network. Through collaboration and strategic partnerships, together we can drive Aotearoa towards reducing carbon emissions.
We operate a load management system to help reduce the load at times of peak regional demand. This includes the management of storage heating loads (eg, water heating) and streetlights.
We are committed to being open and transparent, and information relating to Aurora Energy is available in our Disclosures library.
