GeoPower Europe 2010 will be Green Power and EGEC's biggest event yet. Delegate numbers are almost 3 times higher than this time last year, and there are still 4 weeks until the event hits Paris.
CEOs of major developers including Enel Green Power, Magma Energy, Exorka and AltaRock will offer attendees advice on obtaining finance, planning future projects, entering emerging markets and optimising O&M, drilling and seismic mapping. Over 2 days, the European geothermal industry will create a roadmap for the future, ensuring geothermal power is a key component of Europe's renewable energy strategy.
GeoPower Europe, the official conference of the European Geothermal Energy Council, takes place in Paris between 8-9 December.
"We are delighted to be holding this year’s conference in France, which recently increased its feed-in tariff for geothermal energy by 70%, providing a much-needed incentive for greater investment in geothermal power and heat." said EGEC's President Burkhard Sanner in a recent statement. "France is also home to some of the most advanced research and development in Enhanced Geothermal Systems at Soultz-sous-Forêts, which will be crucial in the race towards the widespread adoption of this technology."
