The 7th Geothermal Congress for Latin America & the Caribbean (GEOLAC 2020) is going virtual for 2020! Join us online this September 15-17, 2020.

Will the industry succeed in persuading the region that geothermal is an effective, reliable and economic source of baseload? Can geothermal play a role in re-activating Latin American economies post-Covid and responding to the need to decarbonize? Will we see significant engagement of geothermal with the extractives, industrial or agricultural sectors, and what will this mean for the industry? GEOLAC 2020 will explore these questions and more with the leading experts in the industry.

Co-hosted by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the World Bank’s Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), GEOLAC is the only annual gathering of the regional geothermal market. With unique, interactive content, GEOLAC Virtual will address the challenges facing the industry, showcase national projects and initiatives, and explore opportunities for new partnerships and programs to drive the industry forward.

Ultimately GEOLAC serves to accelerate the development of world-class geothermal projects across Latin America and the Caribbean.
