The world relies heavily on oil, coal, and natural gas for its energy. Fossil fuels are non-renewable and use finite resources that will eventually run out, or become too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. The good news is that we are learning more about the many types of renewable energy resources such as wind, wave and solar energy which are constantly replenished and won’t run out. Also see the CAfE 'More About Renewable Energy Flyer'.
CAfE is the official energy agency for Christchurch. We are committed to developing Christchurch as an energy-smart city.
