Energy Modelling Research Group (EMRG)
Since 1993, the Energy Modelling Research Group has been undertaking research on various aspects of modelling the electricity sector, within the Department of Management at the University of Canterbury. The group was founded and lead by Dr Read, and its activity level decreased significantly when he resigned in 2002. Since that time he has continued in an adjunct role, and the group has been effectively merged with the Water Markets Research Group, WMRG. Activity reduced still further when Operations Research was removed from the University curriculum in 2012. Thus, while some research activity continues, this site contains a largely historical record of the group’s activities, along with some papers authored by past and present group members.
