Session 1F: Overcoming Non-Technical Hurdles in Geothermal Development/Country and Regional Updates

Overcoming Non-Technical Hurdles in Geothermal Development

Geothermal energy is an industry that is rapidly expanding and holds immense potential for job creation and economic growth.  In this session, we will explore geothermal education and training, methods to mitigate environmental concerns, women and local initiatives in the geothermal industry, integration with power grids, as well as construction and engineering issues.

Country and Regional Updates

As the international geothermal community continues to grow, keeping up to date on global geothermal projects, activity and changes becomes increasingly important.

This session will focus on country and region updates, new projects, regulatory and legislative amendments, and activities related to the global geothermal community.
