Registration has been opened for the 3rd Iceland Geothermal Conference to take place April 26-29, 2015 in Reykjavik/ Iceland. The event will feature the conference, networking events, conference dinner, field trips and a trade show element.

Today, the organisers of the 3rd Iceland Geothermal Conference have opened the event for registration. Iceland Geothermal Conference which will take place April 26-29, 2015 in Reyjavik/ Iceland is hosted by the Iceland Geothermal Cluster Initiative and is based on the experience from the same conference that took place in 2013.

This time the conference will focus on the advantages of utilising geothermal energy and how they will benefit us. In collaboration with our sponsors, speakers and guests, we want to drill deep into three main topics: Operability – Feasibility – Practicality.
