Action plan to reduce emissions
Eastland Generation’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases are our geothermal power plants in Kawerau. Geothermal energy is renewable but not zero carbon. Geothermal plants are considered low carbon, producing 7% of the emissions of a typical coal power plant.
In light of this, we are investigating the implementation of Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) at our Te Ahi O Maui and TOPP1 geothermal power plants, which will significantly reduce our emissions.
The target implementation date is by mid-FY2026.
We’re also planning to include CCS with any new geothermal developments.
With transport, we’re rationalising our vehicle fleet so that all non-operational vehicles are EVs or hybrids.
