Iceland Geothermal Conference to be promoted at GRC’s 36th Annual Meeting

Reykjanes PeninsulaToday, members of the Iceland Geothermal Cluster will be promoting the 2013 edition of the Iceland Geothermal Conference at GRC (Geothermal Resources Council)’s 36th Annual Meeting, held in Reno, Nevada, U.S.

Rósbjörg Jónsdóttir, organiser for the Iceland Geothermal Conference, will be in attendance at GRC’s 36th Annual Meeting, held between 30th September until 3rd October, in order to help promote and raise awareness for the energy conference.

As part of the Annual Meeting, Jónsdóttir and her team will be helping to gather sponsors and key-persons within the energy industry in order to inform them on the energy possibilities which Iceland holds, as well as the research, exploration, and development opportunities.

The biannual Iceland Geothermal energy conference, IGC 2013, is set to take place at the Harpa Conference Centre in Reykjavik between 5th – 8th March. The overall theme of the Iceland Geothermal Conference is to share effective exploration methods, learn how to maximise the utilisation of geothermal energy from veterans, and explore ways to realise geothermal projects with less risk and higher profitability.

Topics set to be discussed at the geothermal energy conference will include identifying the possibilities of geothermal; resource management; finance, risk and insurance management in geothermal projects; role of governments and international funds; rules and regulations, and environmental issues related to geothermal energy.

The Iceland Geothermal Conference is uniquely situated in a region rich in geothermal energy, and due to this, field trips will be offered to selected geothermal areas close to Reykjavik, in order for attendees to experience Iceland’s geothermal energy first hand.

In addition, an exhibition will be running during the conference days, and on day 3 a geothermal brokerage event will be organised, which gives participants the opportunity to meet and exchange information between possible technological/business partners.
