Research into household energy affordability
A number of government agencies joined up to research household energy affordability in New Zealand.
The research looks to increase our understanding of how people think about heating their homes, how much energy they use and how they make choices about what they can afford to spend on energy.
Led by the Ministry of Social Development and the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority the project, funded by the cross-departmental research pool, began in July 2008.
The first step of this project was a literature review, examining existing international and New Zealand research relating to this area. This review formed the basis of the next steps, which inlcuded research to understand the actual situation in New Zealand.
