Analyst: Paul Budde


In February 2010 I chaired New Zealand’s first Smart Grid Summit, organised by Conferenz.

This event brought players together from the electricity industry, government, telecoms, IT providers, renewable energy companies, vendors and key user groups.

Prior to the summit it had already become clear that the major problem in New Zealand was a lack of a smart grid blueprint in relation to this essential national infrastructure. Nobody is currently taking leadership in the country; and this is certainly not helped by the fact that the electricity industry structure in New Zealand is rather unique. While the line companies (distributors) would accrue the greatest benefits from a smart grid, the retail companies are the ones that have been put in charge of the so-called smart meters.
