Our levers

We work to create positive change across systems using 3 important levers.

  1. 1


    We co-invest in energy-efficient technologies and renewable sources of energy. When there are financial barriers, we help to overcome these and appropriately share the financial risk to incentivise energy users to invest in technologies and renewable sources of energy that can make a real difference.
  2. 2

    Motivating people

    We motivate people to make clean and clever energy choices. We develop and communicate credible information that will help targeted audiences to make informed choices, and to take action.
  3. 3


    We use regulations to prevent inefficient products and appliances from being sold in New Zealand. We provide evidence and insights to Government to help develop the energy-related policies needed to transition to a low emissions economy.
