Our Taonga: The Heat Beneath Our Feet - 2023The 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.
NZGA Submission: NBA and SPAThe New Zealand Government is in the process of reforming its Resource Management Act (RMA), with two bills intended to replace the Act: the Natural & Built Environment Bill and the Spacial Planning Bill. Both of these bills are highly relevant to the geothermal industry, as we seek to utilise the geothermal resource whilst protecting it for future generations.
30th Anniversary Celebration: NZGA in PrintAs the NZGA celebrates thirty years since its first meeting, we had the following article printed in newspaper publications across the country. Our thanks to past NZGA Board members Paul Bixley, Andy Bloomer and Tom King for their assistance with informing this piece.
Strong NZ Industry Presence at IIGCE 2022After more than two years of virtual interaction with our colleagues and stakeholders in Indonesia, the opportunity to gather in Jakarta, 12th to 16th September 2022, was welcomed by all. Indonesian geothermal activities have continued through the period of the pandemic and we have all had ongoing virtual contacts, but nothing can replace the face-to-face meetings that the Indonesian International Geothermal Conference and Exhibition (IIGCE) provided.
