NZGA’s members are part of a diverse and skilled network of people working and living with our unique geothermal resources.
NZGA is a non-political, non-governmental and not for profit organisation. Our focus is on providing leadership, connection and facilitation to sustain and grow sustainable geothermal opportunities in New Zealand.
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
As 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.
After 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.
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), alongside the New Zealand Forestry Service, has sought consultation on their draft Forestry and Wood Processing Industry Reform Plan. This Plan outlines the means for Aotearoa to lower emissions in relation to the forestry industry.
The NZGA webinar series, "Our Taonga: The Heat Beneath Our Feet", is your opportunity to hear from the different voices within the Aotearoa's geothermal sector. Our thanks to all of our speakers in the series so far.
