2024 Wind Energy Summt

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2024 New Zealand Wind Energy Summit being held in Wellington on

10-12 September at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.

This year’s over-arching theme, "Our Wind, Our Future" encapsulates wind energy’s critical role to deliver our future clean energy needs. Aotearoa’s wind resource is not only abundant, but it is world class in terms of sustained wind quality, which we should all embrace.

The secondary theme of this year’s event is focused on the wind sectors’ ability to provide energy security to the grid. While wind is intermittent on a short-term basis, we have 21 wind farms and 651 turbines operating in real time (a total of 1.26 GW installed) with capacity factors far greater than what is observed in other jurisdictions. New Zealand’s wind farm geographic diversity and high-capacity factors, therefore, enable the sector to deliver critical energy at times when we need it most.
