New Zealand Asset value of water and other renewables for electricity generation 2007–15
This environmental account presents estimates of the asset values of water and other renewables used for electricity generation. Renewable electricity generation is defined as that using water, geothermal (steam), wind, sun, wood or biogas as its input. These estimates are produced using the concepts, methods and definitions from the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA) 2012 Central Framework. The SEEA is the internationally accepted approach for measuring the stocks and flows, in physical and monetary terms, of environmental assets, using principles that are consistent with the System of National Accounts which is the basis of measuring economic statistics.
