For decision makers and strategists in the electricity industry.
To operate at senior levels in the electricity industry requires an understanding and management of the technical, economic and political. The political dimension can sometimes be the most obscure.
This course combines politics and history because it gives us a sense of context and continuity, and explains a lot of the ‘why’.
Following an entertaining online tour-de-force through the last 150 years, a highly interactive in-class session will engage you in group and case study sessions. The pinnacle of the day will be a Chatham House rules session with the Honourable Peter Hodgson, an ex-cabinet minister and Minister of Energy from 1999 to 2004.
Using rich examples of the interaction between the technical, economic and political, we learn about the history of the NZ electricity industry.
This history enables us to view our current decision making, and the decision making of others, in a context that might not otherwise make sense.
Knowing this is critical for our leaders in the industry because history does repeat.
Upon registration participants gain access to the Online Resource Centre where they can view documentary style videos, primers and case studies before the in class sessions.
