Genesis energy–charged for change

Shared Lunch

So how does gentailer (generator-retailer) Genesis leverage its maligned coal and gas assets to help forge a new future in renewables? 

New CEO Malcolm Johns tells us why he took on one of the biggest challenges in the energy sector. He says the so-called ESG discount applied to the Genesis share price will be harder for the market to justify under its new strategy.

Our conversation also covers how Genesis plans to cut costs, its lower dividend, and shoring up  national supply when hydro, wind and solar are down.
