Super early bird registration is now open for the 9th Geothermal Congress for Latin America and the Caribbean (GEOLAC) taking place on November 7 to 9, 2022 in Mexico City.

The Geothermal Congress for Latin America and the Caribbean (GEOLAC) is back in-person and coming to Mexico City this November 7-9. Super early bird registration for the event is still available via this link.

Excitement surrounds this year’s event. First, because the regional geothermal market hasn’t gathered in-person for over three years. And second because geothermal has emerged out of the pandemic and into the spotlight: geopolitically, economically, and to achieve climate policy goals, the time is now.

There is excitement for the location, too, as Mexico continues to prioritize geothermal as part of its long-term energy planning.

Elsewhere in the region, geothermal is making a case for itself not just as a source of baseload energy, but also for its support of burgeoning industries such as green hydrogen production and lithium extraction. Geothermal Direct Use is picking up momentum, too, for its wide ranging applications and impacts on climate, social and economic goals.

What will GEOLAC 2022 look like?

  • Deep-Dive Interviews. In-depth conversations with key national leaders and industry stakeholders about the outlook for geothermal development in the region
  • Project Showcases. Live presentations and Q&A sessions highlighting inspiring examples of direct use application and demonstrating how similar projects could impact on LAC economies and communities
  • Multi-Perspective Panel Discussions. Gathering solutions on tech, finance, regulation and more. These panels bring in all of the elements required for project success
  • National Updates. In a period of high political turnover in the region, we bring updates on energy planning and opportunities for geothermal, directly from decision makers
  • The Technical Assistance Forum (TAF). Led by the GDF, we’ll explore how the region can harness development finance to drive forward geothermal
  • The IDB Stakeholder Roundtable. Gathering senior government officials and regulators from every geothermal country in the region, this year’s roundtable seeks to explore the potential for geothermal to contribute to gender and indigenous persons’ equity.
