EECA seeks feedback on 2019/20 energy levies

The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) is seeking feedback on its proposed energy levy-funded activities for the 2019/20 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.

Forty percent of New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions come from our use of energy; the way we drive, how we make products, power our appliances and keep our homes warm.

'We've got big opportunities, particularly in the transport and business sectors, to use less energy and utilise cleaner energy sources.’

For the 2019/20 year EECA is consulting on a total of $13.8 million from the following levies:

  • Petroleum or Engine Fuel Monitoring (PEFM) levy: $7.5 million (54%)
  • Electricity industry levy: $5.2 million (38%)
  • Gas Safety, Monitoring and Energy Efficiency (GSMEE) levy: $1.1 million (8%)

*The 2019/20 levies were set at $14 million.

The levy consultation document and more information on the levy funding programme are available via the links below;
