Description:

For the first time in history on April 20th, oil prices went negative, so what does the future of energy look like now?

As part of our post COVID panel webinar series, The Sustainability Society is cohosting a session with the BusinessNZ Energy Council to discuss what the future of energy looks like for our country.

For the first time in history on April 20th, oil prices went negative.

New Zealand has seen cheaper prices at the pump as a result, but what does it mean for our energy future?

We generate more than 80% of our electricity demands from renewable sources yet our transportation fleet relies on imported oil.

Join Alan Brent (TSS committee member and Professor of Sustainable Energy Systems at Victoria University of Wellington) and our invited panelists including:

  • Massimiliano Cervo, Future Energy Leader for the World Energy Council, and
  • Gardiner Hill, Vice President of Carbon Management at BP

as we look at what the future may hold for energy security.
