The Government says it is still committed to making New Zealand's energy production 90% renewable by 2025.

This goal was advanced by the previous Government.

Climate Change Minister Nick Smith told an energy conference in Wellington on Tuesday that the 90% goal is still being pursued.

Methods to achieve it include reforms to the Resource Management Act and the emissions trading scheme.
