A draft of the Government's energy strategy has been mistakenly published online ahead of its approval by Cabinet.

The document reveals the Government wants to expand New Zealand's oil and coal sectors while reaffirming its commitment to a target of 90 per cent renewable energy production by 2025.

It said New Zealand should become a "highly attractive global destination" for oil exploration, with expansion of the oil and coal sectors leading to a "step change" in the country's economic growth.
