As an affiliated member of the International Geothermal Association (IGA) and the Royal Society of New Zealand (RSNZ), NZGA also connects with global geothermal communities, and is well positioned to positively influence geothermal initiatives on the world stage.
Fostering a sustainable future for Aotearoa New Zealand through geothermal
The Climate Change Commission / He Pou a Rangi (CCC) has released its draft advice to inform the strategic direction of the Government’s second emissions reduction plan, covering New Zealand’s 2026–2030 emissions budget.
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), along with the Ministry for the Environment (MfE), has recently sought consultation on its proposed National Policy Statement for Renewable Electricity Generation (NPS REG) under the upcoming Resource Management Act (RMA) reforms. This is in order to inform policy regarding consenting renewable electricity infrastructure, ensuring Aotearoa's path towards 100% renewable electricity is adequately supported.
NZ Geothermal Week is a celebration of all things geothermal, held in the heart of the Taupō Volcanic Zone. A collaboration between Amplify (Taupō's economic development agency) and the NZ Geothermal Association, NZ Geothermal Week provides a range of opportunities to immerse yourself in the geothermal world.
The NZGA webinar series, "Our Taonga: The Heat Beneath Our Feet", is your opportunity to hear from the different voices within and around the Aotearoa's geothermal sector. Our thanks to all of our speakers in the series so far; you can see our 2022 talks here.
