Govt now needs to focus on its Energy Efficiency Strategy

The Bioenergy Association says it’s pleased the Government’s refresh of the New Zealand Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy (NZEECS) focuses on the heat and transport opportunities available across New Zealand as implementing these will go a long way to assisting achievement of the climate change targets.

Brian Cox, Executive Officer of the Bioenergy Association said that “It is encouraging that the Government has released this strategy as it addresses many of the barriers currently making it difficult to increase the use of renewable energy, and the consequential reduction in the use of our finite amounts of fossil fuels.
