ThinkGeoEnergy leading in news and research on geothermal energy

  • In 2008, ThinkGeoEnergy was launched as a website blogging about news from the global geothermal energy industry. We have since established the site as the leading geothermal news website and network.

  • ThinkGeoEnergy provides industry news coverage, industry research, a global geothermal power plant map and weekly newsletters for subscribers.

  • In 2012, we launched a Spanish news service under the brand of PiensaGeotermia. The site has established itself as the sole news website dedicated to the Spanish-speaking geothermal world.

  • We continue developing the site and are working on a number of additions, including industry research coverage, a company directory, a tender platform, educational elements and more.

  • We are also planning additional localized versions of ThinkGeoEnergy in different languages. ThinkGeoEnergy also acts as advisory firm working for international corporate clients on research, strategic and marketing related activities.
