Geothermal energy is delivering clean, base-load and low cost electricity in 24 countries as well as heating in 82 countries for fish farms, greenhouses, breweries, and much more! While not yet fully utilized, geothermal energy is an important part of Canada’s energy future, creating new investment and jobs in Canadian communities while also contributing to a cleaner environment for future generations.
We will be in Edmonton, Alberta to host one of our famous Geothermal 101 Events! These events have previously sold out in Vancouver and Calgary. The event includes a presentation by CanGEA's chair and board member of the International Geothermal Association, Alison Thompson, that focuses specifically on geothermal business development opportunities in Alberta. This will be followed by a Q&A and networking. The following topics will be covered:
Basic introduction to geothermal energy & Alberta's resources
Different types of geothermal power plants
Commercial and industrial uses of geothermal heat applicable in Alberta
The state of Canada's geothermal industry
Business opportunities globally and nationally
