The Canadian Geothermal Energy Association opens the Toronto Stock Exchange on September 14 on Day one of its Annual Conference and Investment Forum in Toronto, September 14-15, 2011.

In a release today, the Canadian Geothermal Energy Association (CanGEA) announces it will open the Toronto Stock Exchange on September 14, 2011. The event will open CanGEA’s Annual Conference and Investment Forum, which will bring together representatives from the Canadian and international geothermal energy industry in Toronto, September 14-15, 2011.

On the first day of the conference, representatives from the Association and industry participants will be opening the Toronto Stock Exchange.

“While the geothermal power players listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange have seen a difficult start into the year, recent project updates on the progress of development to bring clean geothermal power to the market are promising signs of a positive outlook for the industry”, so Alexander Richter, Director at CanGEA.

On the first day of the conference development, marketing & media, drilling and direct use of geothermal energy are key topics. Canadian and international developers will speak about geothermal development in Canada, the U.S., South America and Asia. For the first time at a geothermal energy event, marketing aspects of promoting geothermal energy and geothermal energy activities will be discussed to evaluate what the industry can do better to promote geothermal energy and its potential. Two other sessions will then look at geothermal drilling and the direct use potential for geothermal are

A recent report by the Geological Survey of Canada and a team of leading scientists in the field of geothermal energy highlights the “enormous geothermal energy resources that could supply Canada with a renewable and clean source of power”. So we are proud to have the Geological Survey of Canada represented speaking about the report and the potential for geothermal in Canada on day two. Other topics are then geothermal research activities and education in Canada, geothermal policy and power systems options for geothermal projects.

The second half of day two will then be our annual Investment Forum with presentations on the Canadian Geothermal Reporting Code, geothermal exploration risk insurance and geothermal financing.

For the conference, we have been able to attract high-level speakers from Canada, the United States, Iceland, Switzerland, Indonesia and Argentina to present their companies and activities.
