A recent webinar held by the Climate Policy Initiative and the Climate Investment Funds shares recommendations on the effective delivery of public finance from policymakers and development finance institutions to enable fast and cost-effective deployment of geothermal in developing countries.

It draws lessons from case studies of geothermal projects with different public, private and mixed development models in Turkey, Kenya and Indonesia. Geothermal energy has the potential to provide significant amounts of low-carbon, low-cost electricity in many developing countries. However, it is not reaching its potential in developing countries. This webinar explores the barriers to geothermal deployment and ways of addressing them.
