IRENA will be hosting a High-Level Roundtable on Geothermal in the Global Energy Transformation: What way forward? on 16 November 2017 during the COP23 meetings in Bonn, Germany.

In conjunction with the COP23 Climate Change meetings in Bonn, Germany IRENA is organising a High-Level Roundtable on Geothermal in the Global Energy Transformation: What way forward? on 16 November 2017.

This High-Level Roundtable will gather high-level representatives to examine how geothermal energy can play a role in the achievement of decarbonisation goals and in the implementation of nationally determined contributions (NDCs).

The event will also offer an opportunity to discuss how the GGA can further contribute to facilitating the exchange of experiences and best practices, mobilising finance to unlock geothermal investments and providing modern and sustainable energy services for all countries.

The event is organised by IRENA under the umbrella of the Global Geothermal Alliance (GGA) initiative, which was launched during COP21 in December 2015 to serve as a global platform for improved dialogue, cooperation and coordinated action among policy makers, industry, and other stakeholders.

The Alliance, composed of over 70 member countries and partner institutions from across the globe, aims to improve the environment for geothermal energy development so to achieve a five-fold growth in the global installed capacity for geothermal power generation and a two-fold growth for geothermal heating by 2030.
