Global Geothermal Energy Summit

November 21-22, 2018, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Our 6th Global Geothermal Energy Summit will return to Amsterdam, Netherlands. With The Dutch governments ambitious plans to have all residential buildings to be off gas in 2050, geothermal energy has an important part to play in this transition. The conference will give the latest updates on the global geothermal energy market and its new developments. Showcasing new techniques and technologies that are paving the way for the sector and expanding the geographical regions where exploration can take place.

This year the Dutch government will invest EUR300 million in a series of measures aimed at reducing emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the Netherlands. Projects will involve disconnecting existing residential neighbourhoods from the natural gas grid, using geothermal heat and reducing carbon emissions in agriculture and industry. The government is taking these CO2 reduction measures in anticipation of a new national climate and energy agreement.

The Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) estimates that only 6.5 percent of total global potential has been tapped so far. With recent developments in the industry, unlocking the potential for new untapped sources of geothermal energy production, we are entering a new dawn for the geothermal energy industry.

With Geothermal energy production being one of the lowest forms of CO2 producing energy sources, its development and worldwide deployment is vital in the reduction in worldwide targets for CO2 reduction. The two day event will provide key insights into the opportunities, challenges, global trends and policies, through expert led case study presentations, interactive sessions and discussions giving practical examples of planning, financing and technological strategies shaping the future of geothermal energy production whilst networking with industry peers from across the geothermal power value chain.
