The upcoming geothermal energy event in Iceland, Iceland Geothermal Conference 2013, has generated excitement online after being featured on various news channels and industry websites.
 
Iceland Geothermal Conference 2013 (IGC 2013) has recently been featured on the independent Scandinavian news channel IceNews; the Upcoming Trade and Environmental Events page on the website for the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD); and Cleantechnica.com, the number one most-visited clean energy site in the U.S, amongst others.
 
Rosbjorg Jonsdottir, partner of Gekon Ltd, explains, “It’s great to see this amount of exposure for IGC 2013, as the event is one of the most educationally-rich and unique geothermal events in the world.”
 
The Iceland Geothermal Conference 2013, taking place at the Harpa Conference Centre in Reykjavik, Iceland, between 5th and 8th March 2013, will be focusing on the three main phases of the geothermal value chain. These will include the scientific elements of geothermal-drilling; the exploration phase; and the utilisation phase with reference to the resources in Iceland.
 
Unique for a geothermal conference, field trips will be taking place to visit two geothermal areas in Iceland renowned for its energy resources - the geothermal area of Hengill, and the resource park of Reykjanes.
 
IGC 2013 will be featuring keynote speeches from Sri Mulyani Indrawati, Managing Director of the World Bank; Bjarni Bjarnason, Reykjavik Energy; Gunther Oettinger, the European Commissioner for Energy; Professor Jefferson W. Tester, Cornell University; as well as an opening speech from Ossur Skarphedinsson, Iceland’s Minister for Foreign Affairs.
 
There will be other high-profile figures giving sessions at IGC, including Thomas DeLeo, Sithe Global; Jay Nathwani, U.S. Department of Energy; Mr. Hagen Hole, Geothermal Consultants New Zealand Ltd; Prof. Roland N. Horne, an influential figure within the field of both geothermal and petroleum energy research; and Dr. Mike Allen, Geothermal New Zealand initiative.
 
Running alongside the conference will be a geothermal brokerage event, where participants have the opportunity to meet for utilities, investors, vendors, regulators, and government bodies to take an in depth look at the major steps in geothermal projects. Additionally, a brand awareness exhibition will be running during the conference days.
