What we do
emhTrade aims to accelerate Aoteraoa New Zealand towards a low emission circular economy with this country’s first renewables marketplace. Our service directly connects sustainable businesses to renewable energy projects and includes these features:
- Standardised power purchase agreements (PPAs) with renewable energy project developers
- Traceable, 100% green electricity
- Payment for the project’s electricity through a retailer’s supply bill
Power purchase agreements are becoming more common in Aotearoa New Zealand and help to support new renewable projects.
How we can help you to go circular
New Zealand’s electricity supply is highly renewable. However, fossil fuels still support more than 75% of our energy needs according to the Energy in New Zealand 2020 report. Transitioning to a low emission, circular economy requires us to harness more of our abundant renewable energy resources (e.g. wind, solar and geothermal), and electrify more of our economy, such as industrial heat and transport. We’ve made it easy for sustainable businesses to support new renewables and embrace electrification. Our service will help you support local renewable projects, like solar and wind, and control your energy costs in a rising market. It will also help you meet your sustainability commitments and demonstrate a reduction to Scope 2 emissions.
