Geothermal Resources Council and Geothermal Energy Association Members Overwhelmingly Vote for Unification
The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) and the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) are excited to announce their unification. Combining the GRC and GEA strengthens the voice of our industry with a single organization devoted to advancing the science, education, and development of renewable geothermal energy resources.
Members of both organizations voted on the decision to unify and the results were overwhelmingly in favor. They will benefit from an increased value for their dues and improved networking relationships as the geothermal community moves forward together.
The activities of the GEA will be transitioned into the GRC in early 2018. One of the key activities is already underway through the establishment of a special committee, the GRC Policy Committee. This committee will focus on educating and lobbying leaders at state and federal levels to expand their knowledge about the geothermal industry. The committee will also assist the geothermal community in its awareness of opportunities to expand renewable energy projects, building a stronger platform for the entire U.S. energy grid. All members are encouraged to join in this new effort.
