Energy Efficiency Description:

EECA estimates that lighting in the New Zealand residential sector is around 12% of the total energy consumed in homes, while lighting in the business sector is around 19% of the energy consumed in commercial and industrial buildings. The Rightlight programme (originally containing subsidies but later moving to an information only campaign) was implemented in 2009 to provide New Zealand consumers with practical knowledge to transition from incandescent bulbs to CFL’s and ultimately to LED’s. The Rightlight programme is estimated to have provided incremental savings of 1.6PJ over the life of the programme. EECA also provides lighting programmes for the business sector as one intervention from a suite of programmes that provide account management/engagement and partnership agreements.
