SEANZ Industry Liaison Appointments

5 April 2017

The importance of maintaining a strong representational organisation becomes more evident for the whole industry as it continues to grow and in light of further wider reaching changes in the electricity sector in the years to come.

SEANZ established a new role to help address this - Industry Liaison to work with current SEANZ members and to establish and build new relationships with potential members, who are new industry entrants or established off-grid or grid-connected PV installers, to understand their position and to work with SEANZ .  

SEANZ appointed Chris McArthur (Enphase Energy's strategic account manager in New Zealand) in February 2017. 

Chris has over 15 years experience in the energy sector in New Zealand and Europe. He is a certified Project Manager and Partnership Practitioner  with experience in resources, conservation, biofuels and solar PV markets. He has advised government, agencies and businesses on a broad range  of issues on renewable energy and energy efficiency and has established relationships with many industry stakeholders in NZ.

SEANZ this month appointed Dwayne Cocker (Taspac, Director and General Manager) to the Industry Liaison role.

Dwayne founded Taspac, a wholesaler of solar PV and related technologies in NZ, a little over two years ago after spending 15 years in the Security, Electrical and Automation industry.  The majority of his day is spent talking to and meeting with solar PV installers from all over the country so he understands the challenges the industry faces on a daily basis. He is looking forward to working with the SEANZ team to achieve the goals of growing the NZ solar PV and related tech Industry.
