NZ Geothermal Week would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors, partners and hosts, who share our vision to celebrate and showcase this exciting and growing industry.


Contact Gold Sponsor

Contact Energy (Contact) is one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s largest energy generators and retailers and a proud member of the Taupō community. We are committed to leading the decarbonisation of New Zealand, and it is our vision to create and contribute to a better place to live; from the homes and communities we live in, to the land and resources that future generations can enjoy.


Taupō is the centre of geothermal electricity generation in New Zealand. A low carbon energy source, heat and fluid from deep in the earth is harnessed through wells and turned into electricity.


Commissioned in November 1958, Wairākei power plant, situated on the Wairākei geothermal system in Taupō, was one of the first geothermal plant of its kind in the world, and is an iconic symbol of New Zealand's geothermal electricity generation. Contact currently has five geothermal power stations in the country – all based in Taupō, which will increase to seven at the end of 2024 when new sites Tauhara and Te Huka 3 become operational.


Geothermal energy plays a crucial role in New Zealand’s transition away from fossil fuels and it is an unsung hero. It’s also where Contact leads the world with technology and ingenuity.
