A country market trip will be made to Canada within the scope of the GEE-2 Project. Before the trip, an online information meeting will be held for participating SMEs and project managers.

The GEO-ENERGY EUROPE meta-cluster promotes the internationalization of European small and medium companies. To boost the international outreach, the meta-cluster has created partnerships with structuring clusters in target markets, notably in Canada, Chile, and Kenya. In line with this, partners of the project are offering SME’s the opportunity to attend training sessions dedicated to those market countries. Each training session will be followed by a market visit organised in the country.

Within the scope of the target countries of the GEE-2 Project, of which Turkey’s Geothermal Power Plant Investors Association (JESDER) is a stakeholder, a country market trip will be made to Canada on 13 June 2022. Before the said trip, an online information meeting will be held at 15:00 on Tuesday, May 10, for all participating companies-SMEs and project managers.

Canadian Training session – Tuesday 10th of May 2022 – 2:00pm – 3:30pm (CET) :

  • Canadian geothermal market: global structure of the energy market, geothermal market (regulation, support schemes and risk mitigation schemes if existing, market barriers…)
  • Collaborative tool developed by GEE’s partner (CAPES)
  • Coaching of our SMEs: key aspects when working with Canadian geothermal companies, identification of specific know-how developed by GEE’s SMEs to fit the market…
  • Roundtable, share experience, SME’s expectations and identification of eventual barrier to enter Canadian market
