Wairakei: 60 years and going strong. Each year, the Workshop brings the Geothermal community together to explore the latest challenges and opportunities and to drive the industry forward. This year we celebrate the Workshop's 40th Anniversary. The 2018 Workshop will be held at Wairakei Resort in Taupo, November 14 to 16, 2018. The Wairakei geothermal plant celebrates its 60th birthday that week - so join us to celebrate that milestone.
