A workshop has been announced for January 24-25, 2019 in Galway/ Ireland to discuss the status of Geothermal Energy in Ireland and how the Geofit project is using latest geo technologies in the Aran Islands and Kingfisher gym in Galway.

A workshop on Geothermal Energy Ireland & the GEOFIT Solution will be held January 24-25, 209 in Galway, Ireland.

The aim of this CPD is to discuss the topic of Geothermal Energy in detail, a largely untapped resource to date. In particular, the talk will discuss the potential of geothermal energy in Ireland.
