This week, nearly 1,000 attendees will gather at the world’s largest annual geothermal energy event, the GRC Annual Meeting and Expo, September 15 to 18 at the Palm Springs Convention Center, Palm Springs, California, USA.

GRC has also released an event app that can be downloaded here.

The city of Palm Springs will welcome an international audience at the Opening Session of the meeting on Monday, September 16. The session will feature special guests and energy experts covering many aspects of geothermal and other renewable energy development.

In addition to keynote speeches by Supervisor Ryan Kelley (Chairman of the Board, Imperial County) and Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo (California State Assembly), there will be two panel discussions: The first will comment on the state of the geothermal industry and how California can serve as a key guide for how the rest of the USA and world can transition to the new energy economy with geothermal as a central component of the energy mix. The second panel discussion will focus on transmission issues, addressing the various elements of electricity transmission from the developer, engineering, utility and system operator’s perspective.

The Opening Session will attract leading researchers, academics, students, state and federal agency officials, and executives from notable companies such as Berkshire Hathaway Energy, CYRQ Energy, Calpine, Coso Energy, ENEL Green Power, Ormat Technologies, Inc., and others that develop, build, maintain and operate geothermal plants around the U.S.  and the world.

This is the premier gathering to learn about the latest developments in geothermal energy. Last year, the GRC Annual Meeting & Expo hosted over 1,000 attendees from 34 different countries.

The GRC Annual Meeting will offer technical, policy, and market conference sessions, educational seminars, tours of local geothermal and renewable energy projects, and numerous networking opportunities.

The Expo features a unique opportunity for leaders in the geothermal energy sector to showcase their projects, equipment, services and state of the art technology to the geothermal community. Reserve your booth now! There were more than 100 exhibitors at last year’s trade show.
