The purpose of the Low Emission Vehicles Contestable Fund (the Fund) is to encourage innovation and investment that will accelerate the uptake of electric and other low-emission vehicles (LEV) in New Zealand that might not otherwise occur.

The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) is seeking proposals to deliver projects that will lead to this outcome by contributing to at least one of the following:

(i) Increasing the variety and supply of LEVs available.
(ii) Improving the availability of servicing or charging infrastructure in areas where demand is uneconomic or not fully developed.
(iii) Increasing demand for LEVs.
(iv) Developing innovative products or systems to take advantage of growing electric vehicle use.

The Fund will offer up to 50% funding towards suitable projects that lead to the achievement of these objectives.

For this round the fund will provide up to $3 million to co-fund projects with private and public sector partners.
