New Report Analyzes Wind Power Energy Industry in New Zealand

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Analyzing Wind Power in New Zealand" report to their offering.

Analyzing Wind Power in New Zealand, explores the importance of wind power in today's world. The report looks at the basics of the wind energy industry, economics, issues and barriers, and other such factors.

This offering includes a complete analysis of New Zealand's Wind Power Energy Industry, including an analysis of the companies operating in the industry, the regulatory framework in place, an industry profile, developments in the market, challenges facing the industry, technological developments in turbines, and lots more information is included.

New Zealand has 17 wind farms either operating or under construction. These wind farms currently have a combined installed capacity of 622 megawatts. They supply about 4% of New Zealand's annual electricity generation, which is about the same amount of electricity as 180,000 New Zealand homes use in a year. Developers are exploring sites throughout New Zealand for new wind farms. In New Zealand the wind blows strongly enough for wind-power companies to survive without the government subsidies available in other countries. By providing greater diversity in the way electricity is generated in New Zealand, wind farms make the country less vulnerable to power shortages. A further advantage is that they do not emit greenhouse gases. In future, wind power is expected to become even more cost-effective as turbine technology gets cheaper. Also, power companies will benefit from carbon credits granted for reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
