Submission on the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy Submission

Our colleagues over at the Sustainable Energy Forum Inc have prepared this submission and comment on the new National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy and have forwarded it to Government.

In brief, NZ is falling woefully behind other countries in efforts to raise energy efficiency and energy productivity. NZ is very slow in taking actions to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG). NZ is not aggressively working to implement or adapt to the use of new technologies.

These factors are impacting negatively on NZ’s potential economic growth, whilst they also reveal planning to fail to meet NZ’s climate change obligations.

SEF believes New Zealand must do better. To achieve better results the actions and targets included in the strategy must change.
