Cost of IEA membership to NZ

         
 We used the Official Information Act ( on the 11th of December 2011 ) to apply for this because we thought New Zealanders should have some idea of what  the information that our National-led government is suppressing or indeed are choosing to ignore in their energy and transport strategies, is costing us. 




2011/12/11
To the Minister(y) of Economic Development

Official Information Act Request: 
( please reply to this e-mail to acknowledge receipt )

  • Please provide names and contact details for people involved in liasing with the International Energy Agency on New Zealand's behalf:
i.e.
The designated "Operating Agent" who is the lead focal point / contact for the Contracting Party."

http://www.med.govt.nz/templates/ContentTopicSummary____20112.aspx#A1
"IA Executive Committee (ExCo) meetings and other relevant meetings are attended by a designated "Operating Agent" who is the lead focal point / contact for the Contracting Party."

and / or 

  • "We are usually represented on these IEA Working Parties by experts from the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA)."

Given that " The IEA conducts an in-depth review of each member country's energy sector and policies every five years " and the most recent review was published in 2006,
  • when does the Ministry of Economic Development expect to see the next IEA review of New Zealand ?

Thank you.
