Request for proposals

EECA Technology Demonstration Fund – Special Investment Focus

Request for Proposals for Electrification of Marine Passenger Vessels

EECA funding contributes to the cost of demonstrating proven technology or an innovative process improvement opportunity that has yet to be widely adopted in New Zealand. The project should aim to improve energy efficiency and/or reduce carbon emissions.

EECA has approved a special fund for projects to demonstrate the viability of electric passenger ferries in New Zealand. We have set aside a contestable pool of $800,000 (GST exclusive) for your projects.

If accepted, we’ll pay up to 40% of the incremental cost of your project cost, with total EECA funding available per project limited to $200,000.

The request for proposals closes at 9am, Wednesday 31 July 2019.
