In a joined effort seven Icelandic entities will represent Icelandic geothermal expertise at the World Geothermal Congress that takes place later this month in Bali, Indonesia.

Iceland at the forefront of geothermal development has played an important role with Icelandic geothermal experts having and continue to work globally on geothermal development. With 575 MW installed electricity generation capacity and extensive use for heating, geothermal energy represents today 62% of the primary energy supply of the country. Probably the highest geothermal share in the world. Icelandic expertise has been applied internationally and many representatives from developing countries have actually studied at the United Nations University Geothermal Training Program of the National Energy Authority of Iceland.

The World Geothermal Congress, taking place only every five years, is by far the most important geothermal energy event ever and with the increased and well deserved attention that geothermal energy receives today, it will provide a great forum for exchange, business discussions and in overall promotion of geothermal energy in general.

With several companies and individuals representing Iceland in the form of papers, articles, posters and presentations at this largest geothermal energy event ever, the industry is represented with a booth at the Trade Show on the second floor of the exhibition.

Centrally located, the booth will provide people to connect with key players of the Icelandic geothermal sector. Companies and entities represented at the booth are: Iceland Drilling, a geothermal drilling company, the engineering/ exploration service firms Verkís, Mannvit and ISOR, the National Energy Authority (Orkustofnun), Landsvirkjun Power, the engineering, construction and foreign investment arm of Landsvirkjun (The National Power Company), and Íslandsbanki, a bank uniquely focused on geothermal energy in its energy activities.

These Icelandic representatives invite you to meet them at the Icelandic booth on 1.st floor, stand GA12 and are very much looking forward to this exciting event for the global geothermal energy industry.
