In the wake of a record year for GEOLAC in 2014, New Energy Events is excited to announce that GEOLAC 2015 will be hosted in Nicaragua, a dynamic energy market, one rich in geothermal, and one with a clear roadmap to future development. GEOLAC is co-hosted by the World Bank Group.
Across other markets in the region prospects for geothermal are beginning to live up to the hype. From Mexico and Bolivia to Dominica and St. Lucia there is tangible progress towards exploration, financing, and project execution.
Working alongside our development partners, led by the World Bank Group, GEOLAC 2015 will gather key stakeholders – governments, utilities, multilaterals, developers, capital providers, and other providers of expertise – to explore opportunities for increased geothermal output, tackle obstacles to development, promote the exchange of knowledge and expertise, and facilitate vital new meetings and relationships.
Ultimately, GEOLAC will serve to catalyze the development of world-class geothermal projects in Latin America and the Caribbean.
