This Sunday’s Seminar: Future of Electricity Generation in NZ Our state-owned power companies are a daily fixture on the news with asset sales on the horizon – so what does the future hold for electricity generation in this country? And how will the sale of assets affect this? Josh Butterfield, formerly market development manager at Vector, will be speaking on this topic this Sunday, in the Garden Room at the Grey Lynn Community Centre at 10.30 this Sunday .  This is the first presentation that forms part of the Grey Lynn 2030 Energy Group’s month of energy presentations in September, in conjunction with the Grey Lynn Farmers Market.  Entry to all presentations is free. For more details on Josh’s talk and other presentations in the Energy series, check out our website.
