Hot water represents approximately 23 per cent of residential energy use in Australia and 28 per cent of residential energy use in New Zealand and energy efficiency standards for Electric storage water heaters and Gas water heaters have been in place under the programme for a number of years.
The Australian E3 programme has also done a lot of work developing policy options for other water heating technologies and reviewing existing requirements over the past ten years. However, new work was put on hold as part of the E3 prioritisation process in 2016/17. In 2017/18 E3 work plan funding has been provided to develop a hot water policy framework and high level roadmap for the development of Hot Water Systems Standards and labelling regulations.
The existing E3 work will form a key input into the policy framework and roadmap development along with investigation of international best practice regulations.
This work will help the E3 programme governance determine the direction and resources required to be allocated to this hot water stream of work and provide E3 programme stakeholders with a roadmap for future regulatory development in this area.
The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) of New Zealand will lead this first stage of the hot water work on behalf of the E3 programme.
EECA is looking for credible Respondents who have in-depth knowledge of the hot water industry in Australia and NZ and international standards methodology and trends. In addition, Respondents must have extensive experience in cost benefit analysis (CBA) modelling and drafting policy documents.
Responses must be sent by email to the EECA contact person named below.
