Iceland Geothermal Conference 2013

Representatives at IGC, Iceland Geothermal Conference, are gearing up for the 2013 international geothermal energy event, now reaching up to 400 confirmed participants from 24 countries.

The 2013-edition of the energy conference is set to feature 56 lectures spread out over four days, with focus 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.

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. See programme from here.

Confirmed keynote speakers for the conference include 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 Össur Skarphéðinsson, Iceland’s Minister for Foreign Affairs.

Joining them will be a number of other high-profile figures within the energy industry 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.


The Iceland Geothermal Conference will be taking place at the Harpa Conference Centre in Reykjavik, Iceland, between 5th and 8th March 2013.
