Forum Program

What:   The Geothermal Energy Association’s (GEA) one-day Geothermal Energy Finance Forum will bring the finance and investment community of New York City together and provide a tutorial on geothermal energy investment with top experts and major players in geothermal development and finance.  While the United States is the global leader in generating electrical power from geothermal resources, the potential of the industry has yet to be tapped.  With a growing demand for sustainable energy, geothermal energy is a clean, renewable energy source that has the potential to preserve the environment, create jobs, and better lives. A $350 million investment through the federal Recovery Act has made geothermal power an extremely attractive opportunity for green growth.  

The forum agenda includes presentations and panel discussions on project development and design, risk mitigation, costs and financial modeling, government finance and incentives, case studies from developers and financers with recent success stories, and more.
