We have released a new report that monitors electricity demand from business consumers on a monthly basis. This report splits network-connected business demand from residential demand for the first time, enhancing the information available on the demand side of the wholesale market. Users are able to drill down into regions and explore relative measures with and without NZAS demand included. Some examples of the insights that can be derived follow.

The report can highlight the impact that New Zealand’s response to Covid-19 had on business electricity demand and the degree to which this has now recovered.
