Geothermal Industry Leaders to Discuss Industry Growth: Annual U.S. Geothermal Power Production and Development Report


Join the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) and geothermal industry leaders for a press conference call to discuss the release of GEA's latest industry report, the Annual U.S. Geothermal Power Production and Development Report. Participants will include GEA Executive Director Karl Gawell, and executives from top U.S. geothermal companies, including Energy Source, Ormat, TAS Energy and U.S. Geothermal Inc. The discussion will focus on the report's findings, including overall industry growth, emerging technologies that are spreading the reach of geothermal, and challenges for future expansion. While the U.S. continues to outpace every other nation in the world when it comes to installed geothermal capacity, it has not yet reached its full potential, due in part to inconsistent federal policies. Industry leaders will discuss this year's successes, challenges, and what needs to be done to advance the industry in the coming years.
