What is GEA?

The Geothermal Energy Association is a trade association composed of U.S. companies who support the expanded use of geothermal energy and are developing geothermal resources worldwide for electrical power generation and direct-heat uses.

GEA advocates for public policies that will promote the development and utilization of geothermal resources, provides a forum for the industry to discuss issues and problems, encourages research and development to improve geothermal technologies, presents industry views to governmental organizations, provides assistance for the export of geothermal goods and services, compiles statistical data about the geothermal industry, and conducts education and outreach projects.

Our members have offices or operations in many states and in numerous countries throughout the world.

Why Join GEA?

The Geothermal Energy Association is the definitive voice of the geothermal industry and works adamantly on your behalf to (1) support long-term industry growth through education, information, outreach and advocacy and (2) increase public awareness of geothermal energy and understanding of its near- and long-term potential.

Membership dues provide the bulk of financial support for GEA and directly facilitate our efforts to engage policy makers on critical industry issues, organize events, produce geothermal industry data, reports, and publications, engage the press in an aggressive public relations effort, publish the most widely-circulated geothermal newsletter, and more.

We provide our members with the most up-to-date information on what is going on in the geothermal industry today and the factors that are shaping the industry for tomorrow. GEA’s role has never been more vital and your participation is critical as we endeavor to expand the use of this clean, renewable, sustainable energy source and continue our work advocating for the industry.

GEA membership offers a range of material benefits as well, including listing in GEA’s member database with a link to your company web site, discounts on all event registrations and a special exhibit fee at the GEA Geothermal Energy Expo, and access to exclusive member-only meetings and workshops.
