Promising program released for the Geothermal Congress for Latin America & the Caribbean (GEOLAC) which will take place 17-18 July 2019 co-hosted by the governments of Chile and Argentina.

The annual Geothermal Congress for Latin America & the Caribbean (GEOLAC) will take place June 17-18, 2019 in Santiago, Chile.

Government of Chile has endorsed and will co-host GEOLAC 2019. Chile has moved forward aggressively to incorporate renewables into its national grid. The Government’s endorsement of GEOLAC reflects ongoing interest at a national level in the development of Chile’s extensive geothermal resources. GEOLAC 2019 will feature extensive participation from senior Chilean government officials and a dedicated Chilean investment workshop.

The Geothermal Development Facility (GDF) for Latin America will again feature prominently at GEOLAC 2019. In addition to exploring how GDF funds have been deployed, and with what successes and lessons learned, the GDF will also support a series of discussions focused on how multilateral technical assistance can best be utilized to advance geothermal programs and projects across Latin America.

The Government of Argentina has announced that it will act as Country Co-Host of GEOLAC 2019. Bringing a substantial delegation to GEOLAC, the Ministry of Energy & Mines will also lead an investment workshop on July 17th. The workshop, which is open to all GEOLAC delegates, will lay out how geothermal fits into, RenovAr, Argentina’s national renewable plan. In addition it will define how the Government plans, via policy and regulation, to support geothermal investment.

The event again features an exciting program, which you can find here.
