Mercury Energy is a renewable energy generator and retailer of electricity based in New Zealand Aotearoa.
Some of the biggest social and economic risks that we face stem from climate change according to the latest Risk Report from the World Economic Forum1. It’s a scary prospect and there’s a lot of uncertainty about the direction businesses and governments will take. However, the world’s climate emergency is equally an opportunity. An opportunity to decarbonise, create new industries and jobs that will be the bedrock of the global economy for decades to come.
Mercury Energy embodies this line of thought. Despite the world being in the early stages of the clean energy transition, it generates electricity from 100 per cent renewable sources, including hydro, geothermal and wind.
As one of the largest energy retailers and generators in New Zealand, Mercury is looking to scale up as fast as possible to provide ‘energy freedom’ to the entire nation. This means being more economically self-sufficient and environmentally sustainable through cheap and reliable renewable energy.
