Over 1,300 attendees will gather at the world's largest annual geothermal energy event, the GRC Annual Meeting and GeoExpo+, at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah from October 1-4, 2017.

Utah Governor Gary Herbert will address the Opening Session of the GRC Annual Meeting on Monday, October 2, and he will be joined by other special guests and energy experts. The Opening Session will attract leading researchers, academics, students, state and federal agency officials, and executives from over 200 companies, such as Berkshire Hathaway Energy, CYRQ Energy, Calpine, Coso Energy, ENEL Green Power, Ormat Technologies, Inc., U.S. Geothermal Inc., and others that develop, build, maintain and operate geothermal plants around America and the world.


The GRC Annual Meeting features over 70 hours of technical presentations, workshops, fieldtrips, a plenary session, networking events and more. The GRC Technical Session programs will cover a wide array of topics pertaining to geothermal energy.

The GeoExpo+ features exhibits by leading companies who are paving the way for geothermal development through new projects, products, services, and technology. The exhibit hall will be open Monday at noon through Wednesday at noon.

In addition, there will be joint GRC/GEA policy and market development discussion panels on topics ranging from permit streamlining and new technology developments to the growing international geothermal market.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
