Contact Energy's Power Play

Shared Lunch

We find out why electricity prices are set to rise above inflation with gentailer (generator-retailer) Contact Energy in a conversation off the back of its improved earnings results for the half-year to December 2023.

This is a wide-reaching chat in which you’ll hear CEO Mike Fuge’s view on the future of gas and why it’s necessary but tricky. Why the aluminum smelter Tiwai Point must remain open. Why there’s more to batteries. And why solar is niche in NZ.
