Other Performance Attributes

Wood Pellet Fuel:

  • 100,000 tonnes of wood pellets (pellets) are made annually in New Zealand from wood waste (sawdust, shavings) in Taupo, Nelson, Invercargill, and Dargaville
  • Pellets provide 100% renewable energy with the lowest carbon intensity of any distributed energy in New Zealand
  • Pellet CO2 emissions of 0.003 kg CO2e/kWh
  • Comparable CO2 emissions (CO2e/kWh) are natural gas at 0.195, diesel at 0.266, electricity at 0.0977
  • Heat pump with average COP of 3 has CO2 emissions of 0.033 kg
  • Average cost of fuel for commercial applications is $0.07 per kWh delivered, excluding GST
  • National distribution network existing for simple, safe, low impact fuel delivery service
  • Blower truck delivery can be completed with a truck up to 20m from plant room / Energy Box
  • No risk of explosion or self-ignition of fuel
  • Pellets do not burn without forced air circulation, in a building fire the bulk fuel store will only smoulder
  • No requirements for containing spillages from environment
  • No noxious emissions from boilers, minimal flue gas emissions, meets Regional Council Air Shed requirements
  • Avoids Global Warming Potential of refrigerants in heat pumps — 650 to 2,100 times more potent than CO2 when released to atmosphere
