Transport is responsible for about
- 20% of New Zealand’s total emissions
- 48% of energy-related emissions
Low Emission Vehicles Contestable Fund
EECA supports early and innovative investment in promoting, enabling and/or accelerating the uptake of electric and other low-emission vehicles in New Zealand.
Electric Vehicles Programme
EECA plays an important role in the Government’s Electric Vehicles Programme. Our EV information campaign dispels myths about EVs and helps people understand whether their transport needs can be met with a low-emissions vehicle. We also stimulate innovation in the sector through our Low Emission Vehicles Contestable Fund.
