The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is consulting on the draft replacement New Zealand Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy (NZEECS).
The NZEECS 2017-2022 will guide EECA’s work programme over the next five years.
It proposes actions that will help New Zealand make the most of its clean, renewable energy sources and use energy more productively.
Its actions and targets focus on three priority areas: transport; the heat used in industrial and manufacturing processes; and innovative and efficient use of electricity. These sectors offer the greatest potential for emissions and efficiency savings, which can improve economic growth, energy security and affordability, and help New Zealand meet its climate change commitments.
Submissions on the draft replacement strategy may be made through the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) until 5pm, 7 February 2017.
