The World Geothermal Congress 2015 has been successfully opened today here in Melbourne, Australia.

With a colourful session this morning in Melbourne, Australia, the World Geothermal Congress 2015 was opened.

A performance by an aboriginal dance group and a visiting Maori dance group from New Zealand provided a colourful start.

The industry gathers here in Melbourne to engage in discussions about geothermal development, technological development, research and more. There is a trade show where companies from around the world are showcasing their work and engage in business discussions.

ThinkGeoEnergy will follow the event very closely not only in content, but also on its variety of social media streams.

We have created a short video from the Aboriginal performance which can be found at We will upload this separately as well.

We further have uploaded two videos:
