The paper examines the present position concerning energy consumption in New Zealand. Transport services depend entirely on liquid fuels and account for 70% of all oil consumption. A study funded by the New Zealand Energy Research and Development Committee (NZERDC) is to consider policies for medium- and long-term savings in energy use in transport. The scope for energy saving or conservation measures is likely to be small due to zero rate of economic growth. To achieve a reduction in energy use measures for the use of alternative fuels and land use and energy conservation planning policies are needed. Limits are being placed on peripheral growth of residential development and urban areas are being consolidated to reduce present energy consumption. /TRRL/
