Hon. Dr Megan Woods - Minister of Energy and Resources,
Hon Megan Woods has been an MP since 2011. Following the 2017 election, Megan was appointed as a Minister of the Crown with portfolio responsibilities including the Greater Christchurch Regeneration, Energy and Resources, Research, Science and Innovation, and responsibility for the Earthquake Commission.

For the first time ever, a Minister of Energy & Resources presents at a SEANZ Conference. With the Electricity Review under way, the growing impacts of consumer-centric tech with solar and batteries, the strong global upward trend, achieving 100% renewable generation in NZ and continuing discussions about solar mini & microgrids adding resilience to our electricity system, what messages will the minister deliver. THIS IS NOT TO BE MISSED!!
