The 4th Iceland Geothermal Conference will be hosted in Iceland in April 2018. The conference offers an in-depth discussion of the barriers that hinder development of the geothermal sector and how to overcome them. It also focuses on the business environment through three separate themes: vision, development, and operations.
IGC 2018 offers field trips to nearby geothermal areas and easy access to Icelandic geothermal experts. IGC is known to offer quality lectures delivered by carefully selected speakers from around the world. As before, a networking event is hosted where buyers and sellers get the opportunity to establish new relationships that could lead to new business opportunities.
The founders of Iceland Geothermal Conference (IGC) recognize that networking is an integral part of any good conference. Therefore, we offer attendees the option to use an interactive app to become more visible at the conference. This conference provides you with a great opportunity to learn and to network within the geothermal community.
Past IGC conferences have been a success, with roughly 700 participants on average. IGC is a nonprofit event sponsored by the Iceland Geothermal Cluster Initiative. The conference was set up as an international platform for the geothermal industry and project developers, to gather and share views on how to improve the business environment for geothermal projects.
Harpa, the new conference and concert centre in Reykjavík opened in May 2011. The building is the ideal venue for various events, international conferences, conventions with accompanying trade shows as well as meetings. Harpa complies with the highest Icelandic thermal performance standards. Its advances in insulation and air-tight constructions make it one of the greenest conference centers in the world. These elements play a key role in minimizing energy use for heating and cooling and therefore reducing carbon emissions.
