ABSTRACT
This article presents information regarding the development of wind power in New Zealand. New Zealand has one of the most enviable wind regimes in the world, but until recently its installed capacity was limited to a few relatively modest projects that contributed just 36 MW to the grid. However, the past year has seen developments announced that wilt see wind capacity grow by some 360 per cent by the end of 2004. Despite announcing a policy position in April 2002 for a 30 PJ renewable energy target as part of the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy, the New Zealand government offers no incentives for renewable energy projects. Therefore, all such developments must be technically commercially viable in their own right.
