COP24 is kicking off in Katowice, Poland on 3 December. This round of international climate negotiations among partners of the UNFCCC is reputed the most important one following the COP21 in Paris where the parties agreed to pursue an objective of limiting the rise of global temperature well below 2°C, aiming for 1.5°C. Several events on geothermal energy are being organised.
During the two weeks of the COP, several events will showcase how geothermal energy contributes to climate change mitigation, and how it can contribute further. Poland, being a coal dominated country, is engaging seriously in geothermal energy, notably to solve the problem of air pollution from fossil fuel heating and energy poverty.
The following events are organised on geothermal energy during COP24:
