Experience first hand how geothermal energy is utilized for power generation, heating and so much more in Reykjavik, Iceland at the upcoming Iceland Geothermal Conference, March 5-8, 2013.

Iceland is often described by me as a “Geothermal Disneyland” for the industry. Nowhere else can you find all the different forms of geothermal energy utilization so close and applied. Be it for electricity, heated outdoor swimming pools year-round, greenhouses, fish farming, heated pedestrian walks and driveways.

Therefore I believe that the upcoming Iceland Geothermal Conference to take place March 5-8, 2013 in Reykjavik, Iceland is a great opportunity to meet and experience geothermal energy in the right place.

The conference is organized by the working group of the Iceland Geothermal Energy Cluster and will be an international event in downtown Reykjavik. With over 200 registrants so far, it promises to be a successful event.

With the Icelandic President as patron for the event, the conference got probably the most passionate geothermal advocate on board. More than 20 nations will be represented.

With field trips and social program planned, it will be a great showcase of Icelandic geothermal expertise and providing a great meeting place next year.

ThinkGeoEnergy plans to hold a workshop as part or connected to the event, details to follow early in the new year.
