Event - 4th Global Geothermal Energy Summit

The 4th Global Geothermal Energy Summit will take place onWednesday 18 February 2015 - Thursday 19 February 2015 in Reykjavik, Iceland.

According to “2014 Annual U.S. & Global Geothermal Power Production Report’ by the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA), released in April, 2014, the international power market is booming, with a sustained growth rate of 4% to 5%. The report further revealed, currently there are 700 geothermal projects in development in 76 countries and that if all geothermal power plants under construction are completed on schedule the global geothermal industry could reach about 13,450 MW of nameplate capacity by 2017.

As the report states, there are many opportunities for geothermal power development globally, but where does the industry stand today and what can we expect in 2015? What are the factors involved in ensuring project success and funding in various regions and how do they compare to Europe?

To provide you with answers to these questions and many more key insights into the opportunities, challenges, global trends and policies, through expert led case study presentations, interactive session and discussions, ACI’s 4th Geothermal Energy Summit will provide a unique peer-to-peer learning platform with plenty of networking opportunities with key decision makers in the geothermal power industry.

Join us in Reykjavik, Iceland and learn about the best in class strategies, practices and technologies whilst networking with industry peers from across the geothermal power value chain.
