Firstgas Group announced today that it is changing its name to Clarus, meaning clear and bright.
Paul Goodeve, Clarus CE (formally Firstgas Group) said, “The change to Clarus marks a new and exciting phase for our group of companies, as we look to the future of energy.
“Rest assured, while we will no longer use the name Firstgas Group, our companies Firstgas, Rockgas, Firstlight Network, First Renewables and Flexgas are still very much here for the long-term. Clarus ties these brands together and represents the direction we’re heading in,” Goodeve explained.
“Whether it’s transmission, distribution, supply or storage of energy, the companies under the Clarus banner service nearly half a million homes and businesses of all sizes right across Aotearoa.
“Energy is what we do, delivering it to Kiwi homes and businesses now and into the future.
Thanks to ongoing research and leveraging international progress, we are on a path to distributing alternative, more renewable energy sources, playing our part to help New Zealand reach its net zero carbon goal by 2050.
“We have progressed our renewable gas projects this year. We are on track to deliver New Zealand’s first biogas to biomethane upgrading facility, in Q2 next year and we have made progress on New Zealand’s first hydrogen blend trial. We also continue to investigate bioLPG, which could allow our Rockgas customers to reduce their emissions in the future,” Goodeve said.
“We are excited about the future. We have a clear strategy and are looking at opportunities to ensure New Zealanders are delivered natural gas, LPG and electricity safely and reliably right now, while we plan for a future with renewable energy.” Goodeve added.
