In a webinar on Aug. 27, 2020 - specialists from engineering group Jacobs will share details on on the the approach to apply UNFC specifications for renewables and geothermal projects.

The United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) is transforming into the global standard for the classification of renewable energy resources. UNFC provides a structured way to assess development projects’ status and the energy they will produce and enables comparison across all technologies.

UNFC has, for some time, been applied to hydrocarbon fuels and minerals. UNFC specifications for solar, wind, and geothermal are now published, with hydropower still under development. UNFC will be applied to national inventories and expected by the investment community at the corporate portfolio and project level. Jacobs participated in the preparation of the geothermal specification – which was the first renewable energy specification to be approved – and have supported its deployment in Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean.

NZ-based geothermal group of Jacobs is standing for this webinar on August 27, 2020 at 9:00 to 10:00 UTC (11:00am AEST, 10:00am GMT).

The webinar will be presented by Greg Ussher and Paul Quinlivan of Jacobs, both geothermal specialists that have extensively worked with clients in the geothermal sector and have helped train and implement the UNFC specifications e.g. for the geothermal sector.  So to learn more on what UNFC is all about and how it works, don’t miss this webinar.

The work to develop the Specifications for Application of UNFC-2009 to Geothermal Energy Resources was carried out under a Memorandum of Understanding between UNECE and the International Geothermal Association (IGA). Further details on the specifications, background, development and case studies, have a look at this website.
