Geothermal Industry is convinced of GeoTHERM


Guest of honor will be the Baltic Sea Region / Two parallel congresses addressing shallow and deep geothermal energy / European Geothermal Innovation Award

Offenburg, Germany. Europe’s biggest geothermal trade fair GeoTHERM will be taking place in its meanwhile established form at 14th and 15th February 2019 at the Exhibition Center Offenburg in Germany. Within the last twelve years the amount of exhibitors and visitors has consequently increased. 'And for the next edition in 2019 we will be delighted to welcome more than 200 exhibitors and 3600 visitors at GeoTHERM', underlines Project Director Anja Kurz the position of the event.


Apart from the trade fair attendees can participate in two parallel congresses, bringing the latest expertise regarding both shallow and deep geothermal energy. Concerning the high amount of international participants all lectures will be simultaneously translated into English, French and German.


Furthermore for the third time in a row, an international symposium will take place on the day before GeoTHERM, 13th February 2019 in the Oberrheinhalle on the Offenburg Exhibition Center. After Latin America and Asia, the riparian states of the Baltic Sea will be focused at the 'Baltic Sea Symposium'. The event is initiated by the International Energy Agency (IEA Geothermal TCP) and carried out in cooperation with the International Geothermal Association (IGA).


International and national representatives will use this opportunity to exchange information on current activities, findings and projects of the geothermal sector in the Baltic Sea States. 'It is obviously that these cold-wintering countries are likely to have a high level of interest and demand for geothermal energy and technologies to exit from conventional fossil-fuel heat generation. With the combination of country, market and technical information, this symposium offers the ideal platform for networking of international and national participants during the largest sector event. The successes of the last two years make me optimistic for the Baltic Sea Symposium', announces the Chairman of the IEA Geothermal TCP Dr. Lothar Wissing. The registration for the symposium is possible online www.geotherm-germany.com with a ticket fee of 20 EUR. The Symposium will be held in English.


Ruggero Bertani - European Geothermal Innovation Award
The Ruggero Bertani European Geothermal Innovation Award is an initiative from EGEC Geothermal in collaboration with the Exhibition Center Offenburg, organisers of the GeoTHERM.


'The renaming of the award in memory of Ruggero Bertani is an appropriate recognition of his outstanding contribution towards the field of geothermal energy and endless enthusiasm for research and innovation', said the EGEC President Miklos Antics. 'It underlines his commitment for developing efficient and increasingly sustainable geothermal energy.'


The Award is given to companies which have made an outstanding contribution towards the field of geothermal energy in the form of innovative products, scientific research or project initiatives. Endorsed nominations and the award winner are recognized for their outstanding work and impact on a growing and dynamic industry. Therefore the award recognizes originality, innovation, reliability,
reduction of emissions and improvements in energy output, an opportunity for industry peers to acknowledge excellence, and for the most exciting ideas to be widely publicized.
