GEE-2 Project Kenya market tour and other webinars in June – Registration open Project Geo-Energy Europe 2 (source: Email correspondence)
Carlo Cariaga 20 Jun 2022

A country market trip will be made to Kenya 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 stakeholders of the GEE-2 EU Project Consortium offer local SMEs operating in the geothermal field the opportunity to participate in “training sessions” to be held for targeted country markets such as Chile, Canada, Kenya and Costa Rica. In this context, an online “training session” for each target country will be followed by a “market visit” to the relevant country.

Geo-Energy was formed by important geothermal stakeholders from different countries and disciplines with the aim of developing the communication network and possible cooperation opportunities between SMEs operating in the field of geothermal energy in the European continent. JESDER has been involved since 2020 as one of the nine international executive co-participants. The announcements and registration links of the online seminars that will be held in June within the scope of the Europe 2 Project (GEE-2) EU Project are below.
