Alexander Richter 5 Oct 2009

The Geothermal Energy Expo 2009 was opened yesterday in Reno, Nevada. As part of the event Nevada is promoting itself as a location for geothermal companies and the venue of the event is actually announcing a new geothermal heating system using a geothermal well drilled this year.

The biggest ever Geothermal Energy Expo was opened yesterday in Reno, Nevada. The event sees more than 120 exhibitors and more than 2,000 guests.

ThinkGeoEnergy will cover the event with articles and pictures from the event via Flickr.

As part of the event a number of news pieces have been launched from Nevada.

One article talks about that “Nevada is home to some of the world’s most promising geothermal resources, the City of Reno and the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada believe it makes sense for companies in the industry to locate their corporate offices in Northern Nevada.
