The article focuses on the use of renewable energy in New Zealand. Among the renewable energy sources of the country include the hydroelectric power generation system which has the storage capacity of 4900 gigawatt per hour (GWh), geothermal energy which can be generated from the extraction of heat, and the wind energy which can be generated and operated from wind farms.
