In its 7th edition the Indonesia International Geothermal Convention & Exhibition again promises to be a key meeting point for Indonesia's geothermal energy sector, that despite a certain delay. There are exciting discussions ahead at the IIGCE.

The 7th edition of the Indonesia International Geothermal Convention & Exhibition will be held in Jakarta, 13-15 August 2019.

The event features an extensive agenda with plenary and technical sessions and a large exhibition.

Over the years, the event has established itself as an important meeting point for the stakeholders of the geothermal sector in Indonesia.

Faced with challenges related to development and the delay in contracting for tariffs for developers over the past years, there is hope that things will push forward. With the elections behind, a certain stability should be back allowing developers better planning security.

With the commencement of the geothermal projects of Dieng 2 and Patuha 2 by PT Geo Dipa Energi and ongoing push by developers, things are progressing – but maybe not as fast as everybody hopes.

With the expected start of operations of the geothermal plants of Lumut Balai (55 MW) and Sorik Marapi (40 MW), there will be some capacity come online this year. If we see the build out of the 80 MW Muara Laboh already this year will have to be seen.

ThinkGeoEnergy partners again with the event and will attend.

An early registration discount is available until June 8, 2019.
