An efficient and reliable energy system is fundamental to economic growth and wellbeing in New Zealand. The purpose of the Summer School is to outline some of the key issues facing New Zealand, including:
- Dependence on imported liquid fuel.
- Developing and integrating renewable sources of energy.
- Public transport.
- Climate change.
The School will be divided into two parts:
The first part will review economic models for analysing energy policy, including: basic models of supply and demand; and dynamic models demonstrating the role of uncertainty in energy policy analysis.
The second part will focus on energy markets, emerging technologies, transport planning, and energy policy. Insights into the practical aspects of energy supply will come from industry representatives.
A certificate of participation will be awarded to the attendees.
