ESMAP with the World Bank will be hosting a global virtual event on the direct use applications of geothermal heat on September 27 to 29, 2021.

The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) will be launching “Geothermal Direct Use: Global Forum & Tour.” This is an event designed to demystify direct use applications of geothermal and to connect and inform stakeholders in the field. The goal is to facilitate the uptake of Geothermal Direct Use (GDU) world-wide.

Pivoting around virtual world tours of installations, masterclasses, and interactive group discussions, the Geothermal Direct Use: Global Forum & Tour (GDU Global) will bring national and industry leaders together to define best practices, frameworks, and a roadmap to establish GDU as a critical source and supply of heat.

ESMAP is a partnership between the World Bank and 19 partners to help low and middle-income countries reduce poverty and boost growth through sustainable energy solutions. ESMAP’s analytical and advisory services are fully integrated within the World Bank’s country financing and policy dialogue in the energy sector. Through the World Bank Group (WBG), ESMAP works to accelerate the energy transition required to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. It helps to shape WBG strategies and programs to achieve the WBG Climate Change Action Plan targets.
