RENO — For the first time, the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) will bring together industry and government leaders from both the state and national level for the GEA National Geothermal Summit to talk about geothermal energy and some of the key opportunities and challenges to its success and growth.
A productive dialogue at this event, to be held Aug. 16 and 17 at the Grand Sierra Resort, will help accelerate geothermal projects across the western United States, potentially creating hundreds of thousands of new jobs. The summit will be held for GEA members, companies and individuals in the geothermal industry with industry experts sharing real-life approaches to getting geothermal projects in the ground and online. Topics include “Outlooks for Washington D.C. and the Western States,” “Building New Transmission Projects in the Western States,” “New Renewable Energy Policy Developments in California” and “Moving Geothermal Forward on Public Lands.” There will also be an Expo Hall featuring government agencies, universities and leading geothermal developers from the growing geothermal industry.
Reno Mayor Bob Cashell will give the event’s opening remarks.
