EECA funding focus to move beyond electricity

Energy and Resources Minister Simon Bridges has proposed changes to how EECA is funded which will allow us to better focus on the transport and industrial sectors.

At present EECA is part-funded from a levy collected from the electricity industry which we can only use to fund electricity efficiency initiatives. Minister Bridges has proposed that EECA be able to access funding through the Petroleum and Engine Fuels Monitoring Levy and the Gas Levy to use on initiatives in the transport and industrial sectors.
