EECA seeks feedback on 2020/21 energy levies

The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) is seeking feedback on its proposed energy levy-funded activities for the 2020/21 year.

EECA receives part of its funding from levies collected from the road transport fuel, electricity and gas sectors.

EECA’s Chief Executive Andrew Caseley says the levy funding will help EECA continue its work to improve the energy productivity and reduce the carbon intensity, of New Zealand’s economy.

’41 per cent of New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions come from our use of energy; the way we drive, make products, keep our homes warm, and the energy efficiency of our appliances, all have an impact.’

Mr Caseley says EECA’s core activities in promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy use are key to reducing energy costs for consumers, as well as energy-related greenhouse gas emissions.
