Wind Energy Conference 2020

The 2020 Wind Energy Conference date has been set for Tuesday 12 May at the InterContinental in Wellington.

The electricity sector is experiencing real change with the transition to a low-emissions economy driving future demand growth and innovation transforming business models.

The call for the accelerated electrification of the energy sector is strong with wind energy having an essential role in enabling decarbonisation.

In recognition of the current and future investment needed in new wind development the theme for the 2020 Conference is Rising to the Challenge. We’re off to a great start with over 355MW of new wind committed in 2019 and more planned for 2020 but this is the beginning if New Zealand is to achieve net zero by 2050.

The programme builds on the 2019 Conference where the theme was Breaking new Ground. Key areas for discussion include unpicking the decarbonisation opportunity, progress updates on NZ developments, showcasing innovation and addressing the scale of new wind development required and developing a roadmap to make it happen.

The Conference day will again comprise four sessions with presentations grouped in each session:

  • Session 1 – Decarbonising the energy sector
  • Session 2 – Building new wind
  • Session 3 – New opportunities
  • Session 4 – Rising to the challenge, a future roadmap

Registration for the Conference includes a “stand up” dinner and networking.

As always, the Conference is also a great opportunity to share knowledge, be inspired and network with industry colleagues.

It’s going to be a big day with an exciting line up of speakers. We hope you can join us.

Registration for the Conference is open.  More details on the programme and speaker line-up will be available in early 2020.
