Dr Sea Rotmann, OERC Symposium 2008
How do we fit into the wider energy research landscape in NZ?
Wider strategic contextDeveloping a NZ Sustainable Energy Research Strategy (under SEOG)Collaborating on a Demand Side Research Strategy (for FRST, with NERI)Supporting NZES/NZEECS/NZTSIncluding multi-stakeholder, multi-disciplinary, whole energy systems approachSupporting FRST and MoRST (operational and policy)Support NERI and partnersCapability buildingInternational linkages
EECA internal researchProgramme-specific, operational research short-term, largely applied, technical or policy research, some monitoring and data gathering (usually consultants, 1-3 months)Longer-term, strategic, collaborative research (cross government or FRST funded research, 1-5 years)
Two main strategic streamsEnd-use Service Benefits Research ProgrammeObjective to understand more fully the direct and indirect benefits to end users and the economy from energy efficiency interventions.
End-user understandingObjective to understand more fully the underlying value drivers that influence end user behaviour and barriers to uptake of sustainable energy
