Energy Retailer of the Year Finalist


Z Energy (Z) is proud to have been recognised as a finalist for the Energy Retailer of the Year Award at the upcoming prestigious New Zealand Energy Excellence Awards, held in Christchurch at the end of August.

The Energy Excellence Awards are focused on recognising excellence across the broader energy sector for activities over the past twelve to twenty four months. Ten awards are presented, including the customer focused Energy Retailer of the Year Award.

Z General Manger Customer, Andy Baird commented, “Being recognised as a finalist is a testament to all those across Z who focus on providing top quality service and products to keep New Zealand motorists moving.”

“We’re proud that our commitment to New Zealand’s transition to a low carbon future has been cited within the selection process, as we look at ways’ we can help our customers in their transition journey,” he says.

In recognising Z, judges for the Energy Excellence Awards referenced Z’s expanding EV charging network roll out, commitment to digital solutions enabling a faster refuelling experience, the ability to pre-purchase fuel for a virtual fuel tank and the recent 100% ownership of Flick Electric as Z expands into the retail electricity market.

Irwin Munro, General Manager from Freeman which runs the Awards says, “The calibre of the finalists in the coveted Energy Retailer of the Year Award once again demonstrates the commitment energy retailers are placing on putting their customers first and improving the outcomes for Aotearoa New Zealand. It is great to see Z’s ongoing focus to making this a reality for their customers.”

In 2022, Z was privileged to win the Well-being Category at the Awards. We have continued to focus on what we can do better in service of our customers, and this is a great acknowledgement of that commitment in action.

“Congratulations to all those organisations named as finalists across the ten categories. We look to forward to celebrating alongside you in August,” says Andy.
