Details of events for the biggest geothermal energy conference of the year at the Salt Palace Convention Center, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. 

The Geothermal Resource Decision Workshop will be held on Friday & Saturday, September 29 & 30 and will focus on building realistic geothermal resource conceptual models to support decision risk assessments of well targeting and resource capacity.

In addition to the main event of the Geothermal Resource Council (GRC) Annual Meeting & Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) GeoExpo+ taking place October 1-4, 2017, there will be two workshops before the conference.

The Operations & Maintenance workshop will be held on Saturday, September 30 and will provide attendees a forum to share lessons learned within the industry that can help improve the bottom line of every operating plant, and potentially make new plants more competitive with natural gas, wind and solar alternatives.

The GRC Workshop presentations will be given by experts from private industry, national laboratories and universities, and should prove valuable for anyone interested in learning about the latest exciting developments in geothermal energy.

The GRC Annual Meeting & GEA GeoExpo+ is the industry’s largest annual gathering of leading geothermal energy scientists, producers, renewable energy industry stakeholders, regulators, utilities, and key associated business leaders. The four-day event will offer technical, policy, and market conference sessions, educational seminars, tours of local geothermal and renewable energy projects, a trade show and numerous networking opportunities.

Registration for the GRC Annual Meeting will open in June and will also include entry to the GEA GeoExpo+. Room reservations can now be made on the GRC website at http://www.geothermal.org. A discounted room rate at two hotels is available until September 5, so early reservations are recommended.
