The Chilean Geothermal Energy Association, ACHEGEO, and ThinkGeoEnergy along with its sister publication, Piensa en Geotermia, have signed a mutual cooperation agreement for the establishment of a "Media Partnership" and the implementation of joint measures to strengthen both organizations.

The Chilean Geothermal Energy Association, ACHEGEO, and ThinkGeoEnergy along with its sister publication, Piensa en Geotermia, have signed a mutual cooperation agreement for the establishment of a “Media Partnership” and the implementation of joint measures to strengthen both organizations.

The creation of this agreement has settled on a mutual beneficial cooperation and has ambitious goals, and for this ThinkGeoEnergy and Piensa en Geotermia are very proud to announce this partnership.

The agreement, roughly, is split into two parts. On one hand, ThinkGeoEnergy and Piensa en Geotermia will promote the II Congreso Internacional de Geotermia, ACHEGEO 2013, which will be held April 11-12, 2013 in Santiago, Chile. The development of the first International Geothermal Congress in 2011 was a success, both nationally and internationally, becoming a benchmark worldwide. This year´s goal aims to increase the level of participation, encourage the creation of new business links and promote congress’ conclusions in order to promote measures which accelerate the implementation of geothermal energy in Chile.

The II International Geothermal Congress, ACHEGEO 2013, will be based on five sections;

  • Geothermal Energy Industry Seminars.
  • Geothermal Business Roundtable.
  • Geothermal Energy Technological Exposition Gallery and Hall.
  • Social Activities.
  • Scientific Poster Section.

At the same time, thanks to ACHEGEO, ThinkGeoEnergy and Piensa en Geotermia will reinforce their image within the growing Chilean market, strengthening its position in which may become the largest market in the Spanish-speaking countries and one of the most important in the world, since it has a geothermal potential of 16,000 MW.

Apart from the “Media Partnership” agreement, they will also boost measures to enhance ACHEGO´s member visibility internationally, will promote activities to increase awareness of the opportunities and challenges of the Chilean geothermal market, and other activities like workshops, meetings and similar are also being assessed.
