Clean energy upgrade for public sector

 

More state sector organisations will be supported to switch to clean energy as part the Government’s plan for a carbon neutral public sector by 2025.

The Government has allocated another $13.2 million from the $220 million State Sector Decarbonisation Fund to purchase electric vehicles and replace coal boilers with cleaner alternatives.

The fund has now supported state sector organisations across Aotearoa to purchase nearly 600 electric vehicles and replace more than 100 coal boilers.

The clean energy projects that will be supported include:

  • Adding another 127 electric vehicles to the state sector fleet
  • Upgrading universities and other public organisations to run on clean, climate-friendly energy
