This workshop has been organized by USEA in collaboration with UNEP, under the auspices of the African Geothermal Centre of Exellence (AGCE). In this workshop, innovations will be discussed which allow geothermal resource to have a greater benefit, on both the grid and as an engine of Local Economic Growth in East Africa. Since there is no one “best” strategy, the workshop's structure and goal is for participants to start developing strategies tailored to their particular resources, needs, and opportunities.
This web conference will go over the project “Roll-out of Deep Geothermal Energy in NW-Europe” (DGE-ROLLOUT) which facilitates the use of deep geothermal energy as a climate-friendly energy resource to reduce CO2 emissions and to protect the environment in North-West Europe.
11:00 - 15:00 CEST
Learn about public and private financing opportunities for clean energy projects at the SMARTSPEND Financing Clean Energy in the Context of the EU Recovery.
The COST Action Geothermal DHC organises a digital workshop on 1st October 2020 about the opportunities and limitations of using geothermal energy in European touristic volcanic islands.
11:00 - 12:30
This webinar has been organised in the framework of the GEORISK project and as part of the European Week of regions and cities. Investments in heating and cooling technologies happen mostly at local level, in cities and regions. However, large financial resources are not always available for local authorities and planning for renewables installations might be complex.
With 23 geothermal plants in operation, 15 in planning stages, Bavaria is one of the hottest geothermal markets in Europe today. So don't miss the 9th Praxisforum Geothermie.Bayern -a key event for the region. The program focuses on the special strength of deep geothermal energy – coupled with the generation of electricity, heating and cooling.
2:00 pm - 4:30 pm (CET)
This annual conference was meant to be organised during ISEC 2020. Since this conference has been postponed due to COVID-19, the RHC ETIP Secretariat and ISEC co-organisers have decided to join forces later in 2021 and keep the RHC ETIP’s 100% RHC Event, as an independent online event in 2020.
10:00 - 13:30
Workshop on establishing a new multilateral joint programming initiative on renewable heating and cooling.
The GRC’s Annual Meeting & Expo is the geothermal industry’s flagship annual conference, reflecting the global nature of the geothermal industry with representation from 33 countries, 240 companies, and 40 universities at our last meeting in Reno in 2018.
The Geo-Coat consortium organizes its 2nd webinar on mitigating the corrosion challenges in aggressive geothermal environments - "Material characterisation and testing of coatings for corrosion challenges in high-temperature geothermal power production" on 21st October, 13:00 UK time
25 - 30
100%RES 2020 is organized by the University of Pisa in cooperation with the international journal Applied Energy and the Applied Energy Innovation Institute (AEii). The event consists of four-day symposium and one-day for additional activities and site visiting. The conference will include keynotes and invited speeches, plenary sessions, oral presentations and poster sessions.
In autumn the German geothermal industry traditionally gathers for the Geothermal Congress (DGK). This year the congress will be offered in virtual rooms. Energy experts from science and industry will be able to exchange knowledge and network during this digital edition of the German Geothermal Congress.
The 1st Geoscience & Engineering in Energy Transition Conference (GET) is cross-disciplinary by design. The audience will be composed by geoscientists and engineers working on all subsurface usages, either relevant to energy transition (geothermal and storage) or more traditional resource exploitation; representatives of universities and research institutions, geological surveys, local and national authorities and regulators, petroleum operators and energy utilities, field service and consulting firms are offered a platform to exchange views and experience.
Geothermal is increasingly coming onto the low carbon energy radar, as governments realise that their policies need to mitigate against fossil fuels, while not inducing economic stress, which is especially relevant now due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, there are still a number of issues that hold back global utilisation of this energy source, both technical and political/commercial. This webinar hopes to explain, in broad terms, the issues and how we can progressively overcome them, embracing existing technologies and developing the fit-for-purpose solutions that deep geothermal energy presents.
Sessions will address, among other topics, the SET Plan contribution to the Green Deal as a driver of the EU recovery, and more specifically the three main European energy policy initiatives that will be launched this year, namely energy system integration and hydrogen, offshore renewables and the renovation wave.
Throughout this conference, international specialists and companies will guide you through innovative and sustainable energy developments. Decision-makers from industry, government and knowledge institutes will be mobilised to realign the industry's vision and trigger transformational change in this new landscape.
15 - 19
The World Renewable Energy Congress (WREC) and Network (WREN) is a non-profit company helping foster the transfer of renewable energy technology from developed countries to developing countries. This congress will be their 30th anniversary.
The World Geothermal Congress (WGC) will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland in May 2021 in the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre. WGC is finally coming to Iceland, a country that has shown so clearly to the world how renewable energy can power a modern economy in the 21st century. The Icelandic geothermal community has played a vital role in the technological development of geothermal power for the past decades, not only in power generation but also in district heating and direct use.
