Our thanks to Karena Kelly from Te Kawa a Māui for suggesting the Māori name for our journal. Karena explains: 'Kapohau is the Māori term for the action of a wind turbine, comprised of "kapo" (to catch/capture) and "hau" which typically means wind in the turbine context. However, "hau" is also used in other contexts to mean the vitality or vital essence of a person, place or object. It seems to me that this ambiguity makes for an apt play on words and a beautiful fit for your journal.'

Our banner will be updated to reflect the new name from 2016.
