Community Events

Learn about the activity, benefits and future plans for the geothermal industry in our district.

The geothermal industry attracts investors and business into the regions, creating employment opportunities and lifting the income and skills of local communities, while helping New Zealand transition towards a Net Carbon Zero energy future. Maori play a key part in realising this potential, as guardians, investors, operators and employees in the industry, with industry seeking to reflect Mauri values in the way it develops, operates and sustains this taonga.

We invite our local communities to take the opportunity to learn about this significant and growing industry on their doorstep, and hear what the NZ geothermal industry is doing to improve the environment and ensure local communities thrive.
