As we know the electricity sector is on the cusp of real change with the transition to a low-emissions economy and innovation transforming business models and driving demand growth. This year we are pleased to advise that Nevill Gluyas, Director of Equity Research for Credit Suisse, is our AGM guest speaker. In August Credit Suisse published an excellent report on the industry titled “NZ Electricity Generators: Decarbonisation beckons - but at what price?”. Nevill will present a summary of this most interesting Report which looks at industry growth, future electricity prices, regulatory change, sector forecasts, valuations and company ratings.

We’ll also provide an update on the Wind Industry and the activities of the Association over what has been a busy and positive year for the future of renewable electricity generation.

Voting papers, if required, will be sent out on Friday 26 October.

We hope members will be able to join us at this year’s meeting.
