The European Geohermal Energy Council (EGEC) and the International Geothermal Association (IGA) European Branch are inviting to the European Geothermal Congress 2013 to take place June 3-7, 2013 in Pisa/ Tuscany, Italy. Deadline for abstracts is November 30, 2012.

The last time held in 2007, the European Geothermal Congress will now take place, June 3-7, 2013 in Pisa/ Tuscany, Italy.

The European Geothermal Congress EGC 2013 will provide a stage to present and discuss new developments in the science, technology, industry, and policy of geothermal energy on our continent. The congress continues the series of European geothermal events under the IGA (International Geothermal Association) umbrella, the most recent of which have been EGC 2007 in Unterhaching (Munich), Germany, EGC 2003 in Szeged, Hungary, and EGC 1999 in Basel, Switzerland.

The upcoming EGC 2013, organised by EGEC (European Geothermal Energy Council) and IGA-ERB (IGA European Regional Branch), will bring a major geothermal conference back toTuscany, the cradle of geothermal power production, where the highly successful world-wide congress, WGC 1995, was held in Florence.
Pisa, the historical city on the River Arno, a famous place for science and art over centuries and thriving today with modern research and education institutions, offers perfect conditions for concentrated work at the conference, and invites you to explore the geothermal energy use in the region, from humble ground-source heat pump applications to high-enthalpy steam fields of Larderello.

With EGEC and IGA-ERB joining forces for EGC 2013, the organisers demonstrate the growing economic weight of geothermal energy, and the importance of close links between science and industry that will be required to increase the share of geothermal energy within the European energy portfolio.

The organizers invite all players in the geothermal sector to contribute to EGC 2013, to present their newest findings and ideas, to discuss scientific results as well as new project developments, to consider the necessary steps in policy and regulation; in short, to help in growing the geothermal energy network in Europe.

The deadline for abstracts is 30 November 2012.
