An efficient and reliable energy system is fundamental to economic growth and wellbeing in New Zealand.

The Energy Centre invites you to join specialist commentators and academics to discuss these issues at the eighth Summer School in Energy Economics.

What is the Summer School?

The Summer School programme outlines key issues facing New Zealand, including dependence on imported liquid fuel, developing and integrating renewable sources of energy, public transport and climate change.

The School is 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.
