Brussels, 11 July 2022 – How geothermal is the right answer to the energy crisis, explained this October.
The program of the largest geothermal congress in Europe is now available
On 17-21st October, the European Geothermal industry will meet in Berlin, Germany, to discuss the latest developments in this growing industry. The result will be new, clear information about the status and trajectory of the sector for a geothermal decade.
Every three years, stakeholders from all parts of the geothermal sector whether academic, industrial, financial, policy-making, or societal to come together for the European Geothermal congress, organised by the European Geothermal Energy Council (EGEC). The 2022 edition is organised in collaboration with Baker Hughes, the main sponsor, and the German Association of Geothermal Energy (BvG).
The desired program of the European Geothermal Congress 2022 has been developed under the four main streams: Geothermal solutions for the future renewable energy systems, Policy & Markets, Technology & Innovation, and Research & Development. More than 30 sessions will be held on the 3-days of the conference, under the 4 mentioned streams. Moreover, the participation of high-level speakers from the European policy arena and geothermal sector during the main sessions will be key to making EGC 2022 an unforgettable congress.
In addition, 3 excursions and 2 side events have been organised to give the participants a complete-geothermal-experience.
The anticipated success of this event is reflected in the program, side events, and excursions, but it is important to highlight the rapid sell-out of the exhibition area. More than 50 booths were booked in less than one month requiring the organizing committee to secure a new exhibition space to allow for a higher number of exhibitors. Without a doubt, EGC 2022 is the perfect opportunity for members of the geothermal community to connect, share insights and exchange ideas.
Philippe Dumas, EGEC Secretary general stated “During this week in Berlin, the industrial and scientific geothermal communities will join together and demonstrate Europe’s ability to use geothermal to provide clean, affordable and secure energy. European and national authorities must seize this opportunity to allow the sector to flourish.“
Participants, exhibitors, and authors can find the draft program online at www.europeangeothermalcongress.eu. Registration is open until the end of August 2022.
