Join Gareth Gretton and Nina Campbell from EECA as they present the findings of a two year impact evaluation conducted by Motu Economic & Public Policy Research of the heat pump component of the warmer Kiwi Homes programme.
Setting the scene as we work toward the 2022 Housing Summit, this session will cover highlights and more detailed explanations of the findings of two recent reports, conducted by Motu and Vector, evaluating one of the best known programmes to improve homes: Warmer Kiwi Homes. Tune into this webinar to hear about new data on health and wellbeing, indoor temperature and humidity, electricity use, alongside analysis using smart meter data from homes involved in the programme.
Together we look at what’s working, what’s not and where we’ll find improvements for the health of our homes, our whānau and the possibility to better manage home energy costs when cost of living is rising.
About this study:
Warmer Kiwi Homes is EECA’s current programme aimed at making homes warmer, drier and healthier through improved energy efficiency. EECA is committed to ongoing research and evaluation to support programme design and delivery improvements, and this webinar will discuss results from two recently published reports.
The first of these is an interim report from the Warmer Kiwis Study – a two-year impact evaluation of the heat pump component of the Warmer Kiwi Homes programme, which is being led by Motu Economic & Public Policy Research. This involves the collection of new data on health and wellbeing, the indoor environment in homes (including temperature and humidity), and electricity consumption.
The second report is an analysis of smart meter data from homes which received subsidies for insulation or heating through either the Warmer Kiwi Homes programme, or the predecessor Warm Up New Zealand programme. This analysis was conducted by Vector to inform network planning and management, and shows the impact of different interventions on different groups through different programmes.
