Ōtaki College is a major stakeholder within the Energise Ōtaki community and developed an Alternative Fuel Programme within the year 12 Chemistry Accredited curriculum. It is anticipated students studying this programme will work with Blended Fuel Solutions NZ on the technology validation. The programme involves the blending of water and diesel for use in older diesel engines. The project has been successful in encouraging student interest in the subject and increasing student enrollments in chemistry. In 2014 the students were invited to participate in the Festival of Education at Wellington. Leigh Ramsey of Blended Fuel Solutions Ltd is currently conducting tests with Kiwirail ferries.
