Research and monitoring
To continue to make the best decisions about energy efficiency, conservation, and renewable energy, we need detailed and accurate information and analysis of energy use and the potential for energy savings.
We also need to monitor how New Zealanders’ energy use is changing, so we can see the impact of our programmes and other influences.
Research and monitoring gives us the sound analytical basis for our work.
Our research and monitoring programme
EECA's research and monitoring programme is designed to deliver practical information that will support best practice in energy efficiency and conservation and renewable energy. Our analysis helps ensure investment in EECA's programmes deliver the best returns.
Some research projects are conducted in house while others are contracted out. The research programme is overseen by a committee involving people from all parts of EECA.
