Measures under consideration

The Equipment Energy Efficiency (E3) Programme profiles the energy savings potential of different technologies and market interventions and prioritises them for investigation and review accordingly.

How we develop new measures

The steps involved to develop new or revised measures include:

  • Engagement with industry stakeholders to gain an understanding of the markets and technologies under investigation.
  • Identifying options to improve energy efficiency and assessing their costs, benefits and other impacts.
  • Providing a proposal for public consultation and assessing submissions.
  • Developing standards and technical requirements with the input of industry stakeholders.
  • Presenting final recommendations for decision to the Council of Australian Government’s Energy Council (which includes New Zealand’s Minister of Energy and Resources) and the New Zealand Cabinet.
  • Drafting and implementing regulation to give effect to the new or revised measures.
  • Assisting industry to prepare for and transition to the new or revised measures.

Stakeholder engagement

Stakeholder input is sought at each stage during the development of new or revised measures.

Regular communication on the day-to-day operation and effectiveness of the E3 Programme, and any key issues, is maintained with key industry stakeholders through direct relationships and the E3 Review Committee.
