Analyzing Wind Power in New Zealand
As of early 2008, wind power in New Zealand has an installed capacity of 321 MW, nearly double the 2006 capacity. Wind power now provides enough electricity to meet the needs of 145,000 New Zealand households, and supplies approximately 2.5% of the country's electricity demand. A further 172.6 MW of wind farms is under construction, with approval being sought for another 1985 MW.

Aruvian's R'search presents its research report – Analyzing Wind Power in New Zealand – a highly comprehensive research compilation of the fast developing wind power industry in New Zealand. The report also provides a look at the Global Wind Energy industry.

The report, 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.

Aruvian’s 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.

An analysis of the major wind farms in New Zealand is also included in the report.

This research offering from Aruvian is a comprehensive A to Z guide on New Zealand’s wind power industry.
