About ThinkGeoEnergy

In 2008, ThinkGeoEnergy was launched as a website blogging about news from the global geothermal energy industry. We have since established the site as the leading geothermal news website and network.

ThinkGeoEnergy provides industry news coverage, industry research, a global geothermal power plant map and weekly newsletters for subscribers.

In 2012, we launched a Spanish news service under the brand of PiensaGeotermia. The site has established itself as the sole news website dedicated to the Spanish-speaking geothermal world.

In 2013, we launched the Think GEOENERGY Magazine, a paper publication that was to provide a promotional tool to the industry. We are now working on establishing the magazine online and integrate it into the ThinkGeoEnergy website.

We continue developing the site and are working on a number of additions, including industry research coverage, a company directory, a tender platform, educational elements and more.

We are also planning additional localized versions of ThinkGeoEnergy in different languages.

ThinkGeoEnergy also acts as advisory firm working for international corporate clients on research, strategic and marketing related activities.

“ThinkGeoEnergy is the premier resource for accurate, timely, and up-to-date geothermal status updates on current global geothermal companies, news, and events.  It has positively impacted my business development activities, and I not only devour each issue, but count on the data for planning and keeping my corporate leadership informed.  Thank you.”, Halley Dickey, Director Geothermal Business Development, TAS Energy, United States

ThinkGeoEnergy addresses the major stakeholders in this emerging industry as there are Investors, project developers, geological and engineering consultants and the important executing companies for reservoir development (drilling and stimulation) and power plants.
