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.
EGEC, the European Geothermal Energy Council, has appointed Miklos Antics, GPC Instrumentation Process (GPC IP), as new President.
EGEC is looking for a full time communication officer (38h/ week), who is able to work starting from September 2018, for a period of minimum six months with possibility of a longer term contract. We are looking for a new communication officer to join our small but growing team, collaborating with the Head of Communication & Marketing on communication & projects and assisting the Policy officer.
IRENA Innovation Week 2018 will focus on ‘solutions for a renewable-powered future’ and will bring together around 250 leading innovators, companies, and policy makers from across IRENA’s diverse global membership, to explore how innovations in enabling technologies, business models, system operations and sector coupling can accelerate the renewable power transition.
The Indonesian Geothermal Association (INAGA) has announced the dates for the 6th edition of the key geothermal event for Indonesia’s growing geothermal market, the 2018 Indonesia International Geothermal Congress & Exhibition IIGCE. This year’s theme is “Empowering Geothermal for Indonesia’s Energy Sustainability”.
Euroheat & Power and Finnish Energy have teamed up for the 2018 Global District Energy Days. During this two and half days event you will get the opportunity to discuss major issues of importance for European and Global District Energy sectors across a range of technical and commercial issues; from resource assessment and innovative technological design, to market and policy developments.
The Electricity Market Regulation considers renewable power production only as a source of instability, due to the variable or intermittent production of PV and wind technologies. It introduces Capacity Remuneration Mechanisms for dispatchable or flexible generation able to provide grid services to stabilize an electricity
market with high renewable penetration. Yet, the debate ignores the potential of flexible renewable production, i.e. geothermal, to provide such grid services.
Ahead of the high level Stakeholder consultation organized by the European Commission on July 10-11, the European renewable industry associations came together with a joint statement calling for renewable energy to be at the very heart of the EU Strategy for long-term emissions reduction.
The associations representing the renewable heating & cooling (RES-H&C) industries, AEBIOM, EGEC, EHPA and Solar Heat Europe/ESTIF, welcome the agreement on the REDII, as it finally brings to life the first dedicated provision on H&C (article 23) in EU legislation.
More than 120 members from 28 countries, including private companies, national associations, consultants, research centres, geological surveys, and public authorities, make EGEC the strongest and most powerful geothermal network in Europe, uniting and representing the entire sector.READ MORE
