The Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) will be holding the fourth annual GEA International Geothermal Energy Showcase on May 23 in Washington, DC to highlight international geothermal projects, policies, and development in top international markets. GEA is hosting the Showcase with collaboration from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Export-Import Bank of the United States. Industry leaders, government officials, and other power sector representatives from the U.S. and around the world are expected to participate.
This year, the event will focus on success in the leading countries and geothermal markets. Participants from the countries which are showing the most dramatic growth will be asked to address the event. Discussion will highlight what measures are succeeding in expanding geothermal energy production, with special attention paid to U.S. geothermal exports and financing for international geothermal development.
GEA is inviting representatives from both government and business involved in key geothermal markets including the Caribbean, Central America, Chile, East Africa, Europe, Indonesia, New Zealand, Peru, Philippines and Turkey. The program will encourage discussion and interaction about government policies, projects in development, market potential, and opportunities for U.S. companies. Attendees will also hear from U.S. Government agencies involved in export assistance for geothermal companies, and from U.S. companies developing projects overseas.
The “GEA International Geothermal Energy Showcase” will be widely attended with over two-hundred industry leaders, foreign diplomats, financiers and government officials expected. Past events have welcomed participants from over 20 different countries, over 20 U.S. Government agencies and leading international institutions.
