Heat plant database

"EECA in conjunction with the Ministry of Economic Development (MED) have developed a database of heat plants in New Zealand sized greater than one hundred kilowatts thermal and categorised by industrial sector", so says this web page: ... but only a PDF report is linked there, not the database itself. It would be useful to have the raw data in some machine readable format so as to allow reanalysis and/or reformatting by others.

Mapping the use of coal in the Auckland region.

Allowing me to sort/select rows of information by location and fuel and so do some analysis similar to that in the report but specific to the Auckland region and with a focus on coal in particular.

The data requested is now on our website in excel spreadsheet form (the original pdf file is still there as well). Please see

    Hi Louise,

    Thank you for your comment.

    EECA heat plant database has been subsumed into a larger MBIE database that is in the process of being developed. Please monitor MBIE’s website for this new database as we no longer update the EECA version.

    Hope you find this information useful.

    This link no longer works. I would also like this information available by region please (e.g. type of boiler, fuel, etc.).
