EECA works in partnership with a range of businesses and organisations to deliver our work programmes.
We work closely with a number of government agencies - at both the policy level and in delivering programmes.
These agencies contribute funding to EECA initiatives:
- Ministry for the Environment - funding for the clean heat programme
- Ministry of Health - funding for ENERGYWISE™ homes in recognition of the significant health benefits that insulation and clean heating can bring
On transport-related initiatives, we work closely with the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) the Ministry of Transport (MOT) and the Ministry of Economic Development (MED).
Overall, we work closely with Ministry of Economic Development (MED) which leads advice and delivery of energy policy.

Products and appliances
EECA is part of the Equipment Energy Efficiency Programme, a joint Australia/New Zealand programme that identifies a range of domestic and commercial products for possible labelling requirements and Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS).
We work with Standards New Zealand, which is the agency responsible for the development and documentation of a number of standards including MEPS and labelling standards.
To better understand energy use and generation in New Zealand buildings, we draw on the expertise of housing research agencies such as
- Building Research Association (BRANZ)
- Centre for Building Performance Research (CBPR)
- Department of Building and Housing (DBH)
We work with a number of groups on the vehicle fuel economy labelling programme including:
- Motor Industry Association
- Independent Motor Vehicle Dealers' Association
- Motor Trade Association
- Automobile Association.
We also work with individual vehicle manufacturers and traders.
Energy supply and renewable energy
The support from a diverse range of stakeholders - including industry associations, both large and small electricity generators, lines companies, oil companies and biofuel producers - helps make energy supply and renewable energy initiatives possible.
A number of partners - including energy trusts, non-government organisations, iwi groups and commercial providers - help deliver EECA's ENERGYWISE™ homes initiatives.
The ENERGYWISE™ homes programme receives funding from many agencies alongside central government including energy trusts, energy companies, community trusts and district health boards.
