The New Zealand Wind Energy Association (NZWEA) is a membership-based industry association that works towards the development of wind as a reliable, sustainable, clean and commercially viable energy source.

We aim to fairly represent wind energy to the public, government and the energy sector. Our focus is on utility-scale wind generation (generally over 100 kilowatts). We are a central point for information for our members and a trusted voice in the debate about wind energy in New Zealand.

We know wind energy has an important role to play in the future of New Zealand’s power generation portfolio.

We work hard to ensure that New Zealand's world class wind energy resource is harnessed in a responsible and sustainable manner for our generation and generations to come.

If you would like to help shape the development of this dynamic industry then you should become a member of NZWEA.

Our members include over 40 companies involved in New Zealand’s wind energy sector, including:

  • electricity generators
  • wind farm developers
  • lines companies
  • turbine manufacturers
  • consulting firms
  • researchers
  • law firms.
