Energy hardship

Building community capacity to tackle energy hardship

We’re excited to start some work for Auckland Council talking to community organisations about what they need to provide healthy homes and energy efficiency advice as part of their existing programmes and services.

We’ll be focusing on Māori and Pasifika community organisations
who work closely with whānau and particularly those who face energy hardship.

The purpose is to assess how Auckland Council can best support these organisations, whether through training in home performance, mentoring by home performance experts, resources, or in other ways.

This will lead to a programme working with five community organisations to improve their capabilities and capacity to address energy hardship through improving home energy efficiency and health.
