EECA Chief Executive shares resignation

After more than six years as Chief Executive of EECA (the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority), Andrew Caseley is stepping down from his role at the Crown Entity.

Elena Trout, EECA Board Chair, paid tribute to Caseley for his leadership and contribution since joining as Chief Executive in January 2017.

"Andrew’s dynamic dedication to, and passionate belief in, the people and the work of EECA has been without equal," says Ms Trout.

"I believe that EECA today is a reflection of his foresight, energy and ability to build a strong work culture, and to champion amongst all stakeholders EECA’s purpose of mobilising New Zealanders to be world leaders in clean and clever energy use."

Under Caseley’s leadership, EECA has developed a clear purpose and strategy. Programme implementation has included the development of the Warmer Kiwi Homes programme which has recently hit 100,000 insulation and heat pump retrofits, oversight of the roll out of the public charging network resulting in chargers being positioned every 75km on most of the state highway network, and the major expansion of the Government Investment in Decarbonising Industry Fund helping businesses across New Zealand implement valuable low-emissions projects.

Caseley will remain in the role until at least late June and will work with the Board to ensure a seamless transition to a new Chief Executive.
