We partnered with some visionary organisations to bring you TEDxTauranga 2016: companies who shared our belief that new, and not yet imagined problems can be solved when creative and inquiring people share good ideas.



Powerco strives to deliver reliable energy to your door. We keep the lights on and gas flowing to more than 442,000 homes, businesses and organisations across the North Island.

Our energy brings warmth, comfort and security. We do this safely and efficiently and when supply is interrupted we respond quickly so you can get on with your lives.

We are proud of our small town origins and local history. You will see us getting behind community groups and events – it’s important to us to support worthy causes and organisations.

At Powerco, we are preparing for the future to provide a trusted service that evolves with changing technology.

Powerco says:
“Powerco supports TEDx Tauranga because of the wide appeal of the guest speakers.  Past presenters have captivated audiences with their TED talks.  No one goes home disappointed because of the intriguing topics that are covered over the day. The conference concept ties in well with Powerco’s vision of delivering New Zealand’s energy future.”
