Design of a Smog Reduction Program for Christchurch, New Zealand

Client: Christchurch City Council

EnergyConsult staff developed a program to encourage the adoption of low emission heating equipment for the residential sector. The project assessed the achievable market for the program and determined the eligibility criteria, financial incentives and types of program technologies. The program design also included the offer of an insulation retrofit to improve the thermal efficiency of the houses that install eligible heating technologies.
