The World Geothermal Congress (WGC), which expects around 3,000 participants from around the world, will feature an exciting programme, technical sessions, a trade show, side events, excursions and discussions on all that geothermal energy has to offer.

The opportunities to show the world the many elements of geothermal energy use will allow the industry to highlight the important role it has to offer for a cleaner and sustainable energy future.
