About ENERGYWISE


About ENERGYWISE™

ENERGYWISE™ is EECA's consumer programme that provides information and funding for householders so they can make the most of energy efficiency, energy conservation and renewable energy. 

Through ENERGYWISE™ we aim to:

  • Explain the benefits of energy efficiency, energy conservation and renewable energy
  • Motivate people to take action
  • Show householders and consumers how to take action easily.

Why have an ENERGYWISE™ programme?

EECA research shows there is a lack of information for the public on energy efficiency, energy conservation and renewable energy. This lack of information is a major barrier to the uptake of energy efficiency. The ENERGYWISE™ information programme targets this gap.

What do New Zealanders get from the ENERGYWISE™ programme?

The ENERGYWISE™ information programme provides:

  • General home energy efficiency information
  • Information on government funding available for home insulation retrofits, clean heat and other energy efficiency solutions
  • Information to help consumers improve their energy choices (for example, purchasing and running home appliances)
  • Information on energy labeling schemes, such as ENERGY STAR®.
