Event description

Description

Tina Schirr, Energy Policy Advisor at the BusinessNZ Energy Council, will talk about the extraordinary transformation of the energy sector Germany has undergone by retiring both Nuclear Generation and decarbonise its energy system. Tina will, amongst other things, discuss the drivers to the Energiewende, the results (both good and bad) delivered and any insights for New Zealand business and policy makers.

Among other things, Tina's work includes the BEC2050 Energy Scenarios Project, Energy Trilemma Framework, Energy Issues Monitor and Asia-Pacific Energy Leaders’ Summit. Her fields of specialization include the energy industry, energy technology, energy policy and marketing.

Tina holds a Master of Science (M.Sc.) Value Chain Management from the University of Technology Chemnitz, Germany and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) Management of Energy Utilities from the University of Applied Sciences, Zwickau, Germany, including a semester at the University of Borås, Sweden.

One of the projects for her Master’s degree was the analysis of the reformation of the German Renewable Energy Act (EEG) and its challenges for energy cooperatives. Her Masters thesis developed this, investigating the Decentralisation and the distribution system in Germany- potential assessment of various alternatives.

Tina’s presentation will be an amazing opportunity to learn about this much-discussed case study from the inside.
