Become part of the IGC Invest Geothermal

After a successful first IGC Invest Geothermal - Geothermal Finance & Investment Forum, ThinkGeoEnergy and Enerchange invite to the second global geothermal investment forum in Frankfurt/ Main in Germany. Held in the center of Europe’s financial sector, the event will be focusing on important elements of investing in geothermal energy development, such as risk mitigation, early stage financing, market incentives, blended financing options, multi-player projects and exit strategies.

With an increasing interest in development in growth markets, such as Turkey, Indonesia, Africa, Europe, Latin America and others, development continues to face the challenge of attracting adequate funding for projects particularly in the early stages of development. While multilateral programs and development banks are helping development in early stages, there is still insufficient equity funding available to move geothermal projects forward.

The IGC Invest Geothermal event is an annual forum and platform for geothermal industry geothermal industry leaders and international investors, including private equity, infrastructure, debt, institutional investors and public equity funds, as well as public funding partners such as development banks, funds and institutions. It further is set up to help increase awareness among investors and the geothermal energy industry to educate about opportunities and challenges of investments in energy infrastructure development globally.

Overview of the financing of geothermal projects in Latin-America

Christiaan Gischler

Project developers are faced with significant challenges obtaining affordable capital, because investors (debt or equity) are uncomfortable with the risk and the price for external capital is too high for the project to be viable. With larger scaled projects, based on phased PPAs or modular plant developments, i.e. using well head generators, solutions will be introduced and discussed with power plant engineers, developers, operators and investors.

Electricity generation has been the most prominent target of geothermal project development, however further opportunities for geothermal energy utilisation exist to make projects more profitable. To use geothermal heat directly is an obvious choice, but with the summer periods a gap exists in the business case. Another – upcoming topic is the extraction of minerals from geothermal brines. The session will discuss the multiple usage of geothermal energy.
