Wind Energy Conference 2017

Venue: Rydges Hotel, 75 Featherston Street, Wellington, New Zealand

The 2017 Wind Energy Conference date has been set for Wednesday 12 April with the workshop on Thursday 13 April. 

The 2016 Conference was well attended and feedback was very positive. As always, the Wind Energy Conference is a great opportunity to gain knowledge, be inspired and catch up with industry colleagues.

For 2017 there will be an exciting range of speakers from New Zealand, Australia and the USA who will provide insights on international and domestic energy trends, technical and operational innovations and ways to optimise value from wind energy.

The Conference will look at world trends in energy, the outlook for New Zealand and explore the forces of industry change and the opportunities they create for renewable energy.  Climate change and the future of carbon prices will be examined along with latest trends in wind energy including how we can better position wind to enhance consenting and increase the level of public support.

As we all know the electricity industry is going through a period of rapid change and the 2017 Conference will focus on key opportunities and challenges for both the wider electricity industry and for wind energy. 

If you’re committed to addressing climate change and increasing the level of renewable energy we produce in New Zealand the Conference is a must attend.

The workshop topic this year is “a resilient electricity system and the role of wind”. Given recent events this is an area that absolutely warrants focus, and that’s what we will be doing at the workshop.   Further details will be available shortly.
