The 6th Annual Australian Geothermal Energy Conference will be held in Brisbane, Queensland, November 14-15, 2013.

The Australian geothermal energy industry will be holding its 6th annual Geothermal Energy Conference in Brisbane from 14–15 November 2013, at the University of Queensland’s Saint Lucia Campus.

Despite the ongoing challenges for the sector in Australia, 2013 has been important year in the development of geothermal energy in Australia.

Several research initiatives and projects have moved the sector forward. But likely the most important step for the Australian industry has been the successful commissioning of Geodynamics’ 1 megawatt Habanero Power Plant, as well as $13 million in Australian Renewable Energy Agency funding for Petratherm for the development of its production well.

Reporting progress on these projects and sharing details on the technical findings of research efforts will be a key focus of the Australian Geothermal Energy Conference (AGEC) this year.

In preparation for the World Geothermal Energy Congress, slated to be held in Melbourne in 2015, AGEC will also cover global developments in the geothermal industry and their linkages to Australian projects.
