Please join me for the first event in this year’s series featuring Michael Liebreich. Michael is Chairman and CEO of Liebreich Associates, through which he provides advisory services and speaks on clean energy and transportation, smart infrastructure, technology, climate finance and sustainable development. He is also the Founder and Senior Contributor to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

Late last year, Michael Liebreich wrote in Bloomberg NEF about the clean energy transition underway in commercial vehicles, as well as the profound impact changes in transportation have on the economy as electric vehicles and other innovations take hold.

Transportation thinkers familiar with the challenges we face in New Zealand will be asking themselves, what next for us? Mobility transition doesn’t roll on in isolation, so what will happen to our energy grid and the development of other technologies to support the transition?

Michael will address these questions – as well as many others – in a public lecture on the future of transport and energy on Monday 24 June, 2019. This event will be hosted by the University of Auckland Business School’s Energy Centre, and is sponsored by Z Energy.
