ThinkGeoEnergy wishes its readers and their families happy holidays and best wishes for the new year. Thank you for your support in 2014 and we are looking forward working with you in 2015.

Another year has passed and again it is the time of the year to reflect on the past year and enjoy some time off with family.

We wish you and your families happy holidays and a prosperous New Year. We will take a break until the new year and return in January bringing you news as they happen.

We have been able to strengthen our position as the predominant geothermal news website, with a large increase in readers and pageviews.

Here a few key year-over-year statistics comparing the year 2013 with 2014:

  • User growth: 20%
  • Page views: 15% to now 340,000

We have had visitors from 219 countries in 2014.

This year has seen a lot of our time and work go into building up the framework for a new website and research database, which will also carry into the new year. We sincerely hope then to launch a new website early in the new year. It might not be visibly so different than the current website, but feature a much stronger and secure backend, which should allow the site to load much faster. The goal is to create a platform for further growth allowing us to add different elements to the site.

We are currently tweaking our business model to reflect a changed market environment, much about I have written about in an article on LinkedIn earlier this fall, “Surviving running a business in a (micro) niche market“. So you will see some changes.

We are very much looking forward presenting to many of you our new site and offerings at the World Geothermal Congress 2015 in Melbourne, Australia. We will also share some of our thoughts and ideas in videos on our site.

So there are lots of things in the pipeline which we hope to be able to share with you in January.

We thank our partners for their support this year, among them: Scientific Drilling International, GeothermEx, ISOR, Verkís, Mannvit, Technip, Greenpower Conferences (GeoPower Event series), Turboden, Iceland Drilling, Siemens, Power Engineers and so many more who have contributed in one way or another to our activities this year.

All the best to you, your families and success to your activities.
