GEA Geothermal Web Recognizes Students Expanding International Geothermal Capacity in Peru, Iceland and Nigeria
- GEA International Showcase to Highlight Top International Geothermal Markets -
WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 21, 2012) -On May 23, the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) will bring together the global geothermal community for the annual International Showcase in Washington, DC. Recognizing the importance of geothermal research around the world, the GEA Geothermal Web is also highlighting three students who are working on international geothermal projects in Peru, Iceland and Nigeria. These students are researching and studying different international geographic areas for their geothermal potentials. With the help of their findings, engineers and scientists will be able to make better estimations about which locations will have the highest geothermal energy potential.
“As the GEA International Showcase brings together industry leaders from more than 23 countries, we thought it was the perfect opportunity for the GEA Geothermal Web to recognize the future geothermal industry leaders who are currently working on projects in various regions around the world,” said Karl Gawell, Executive Director, GEA. “The findings from their research will help to expand geothermal capacity both domestically and abroad.”
Launched by GEA in October 2010 to connect businesses and individuals contributing to and benefiting from the use of geothermal energy and the geothermal industry, The Geothermal Web now also connects students who are interested in pursuing geothermal careers. This month’s feature includes:
