    New EGEC member TÜV SÜD is organising a free webinar on "Maximise the bankability of geothermal projects" on 19 July 2018 | 9am CEST / 3pm SGT. The high upfront costs and risks involved in exploration and drilling for geothermal energy has often deterred investments, dampening the growth of the stable and clean energy resource. As governments and international organisations offer more incentives to harness geothermal power, potential investors and planners need to ensure that they make the right investment decisions.
