The Canadian Geothermal Energy Association (CanGEA) invites to its Annual Conference, which is this year combined with two workshops before and after the full conference day. The event will take place March 26-28, 2014 in Calgary, Alberta.

The Canadian Geothermal Energy Association (CanGEA) will be holding its annual Conference together with workshops, March 26-28, 2014 in Calgary, Alberta.

Continuing its PowEarthful Theme, the Association says that “there is no better time than now for Canada to tap into its high temperature and direct use geothermal energy resources for clean power and heat.

Join CanGEA in Calgary for its annual conference and workshops where you will hear about recent project developments, the
national database and CanGEA’s mapping initiatives. You will also have the opportunity to participate in panel discussions being
held on geothermal policy and resource estimation. Most importantly, you will have the opportunity to help move forward the National Geothermal Roadmap and Implementation Plan, and contribute to the development of the Canadian direct use industry.
