The world is transitioning into a low-carbon society at a fast pace and I am determined to make Geothermal energy play a fundamental role in the future energy mix. I am looking forward to meeting as many of IGA´s members, partners and alliances in-person and through conference calls and video events in the coming months.”, said Marit Brommer.
Alexander Richter, President of IGA: “I am very glad that we were able to attract an outstanding individual with a strong and corporate professional experience to lead the activities of IGA in times where we are planning to strengthen our efforts in the promotion and representation of geothermal energy. With current efforts on re-evaluating the association’s strategy and operations, and an increasing role towards national and multilateral organisations and efforts, such as the World Bank, IRENA, the REN Alliance and others, it is important to have a strong operational team within the Secretariat. IGA is grateful for the ongoing support of Germany in hosting the Secretariat.”

We are certain that Marit Brommer is an excellent choice for guiding the Secretariat and the global geothermal industry into this important era for a broad implementation of climate protection technologies”.
