The annual event is expected to draw record numbers of participants, with over 1,000 people attending the day event and more than 70 companies represented at the accompanying trade show.
The conference and expo, which will be held at the Peppermill hotel and casino, is one of the most important events in the industry and is the biggest of its kind in the US.
Geothermal energy is seeing a growth in public and government interest with senators John McCain and Barack Obama both having expressed their support for geothermal power, which is a clean and renewable source of energy.
Nordic bank Glitnir will be one of the main sponsors of the event. The bank, which is a leading provider of financing and advisory services to the geothermal energy industry, will also have a booth in the Expo Hall.
Glitnir is a niche player in two global market sectors; sustainable development of the seafood industry and growth in the geothermal energy industry, with 13 percent of the bank’s loan book and 43 percent of its corporate advisory services derived from these sectors in 2007.
