Description

New Zealand has set a target to reach 100% renewables by 2035... but what happens in the market as we push towards more renewable energy sources?

In this interesting thought experiment, Sue Paul (Robinson Bowmaker Paul) explores what market outcomes look like in the Philippine Wholesale Electricity Spot Market as the level of low cost renewable generation increases. Sue will consider:

  • What happens to the average spot price as solar, wind and storage is increased?
  • What does that mean for investors in renewable generation?

After the presentation we'll open the floor for discussion on what these findings mean in the New Zealand context.

Doors will open at 5pm. Presentation will begin at 5.30pm.
