Our strategic focus areas

How we make an impact

We work to create positive change across systems using a combination of three important levers.

  1. 1

    Targeted investment across the energy system

    When there are significant, evidenced market barriers for the adoption of clean energy and clever technologies, we use our expertise to target investment through co-funding mechanisms.

    Co-funding and support

  2. 2

    Education and information for New Zealanders

    We provide education and information to New Zealanders and businesses – resulting in cost savings, resilience, and emissions reductions.

    Engage hearts and minds

  3. 3

    Regulation of products and technologies

    We set standards and use regulations to ensure access to the best-performing products and technologies. We provide evidence and insights to government to help develop energy-related policies.
