After the successful IGC Invest Geothermal Conferences 2017 and 2019, ThinkGeoEnergy and Enerchange invited to the third geothermal investment forum in Frankfurt/ Main in Germany. However, the Covid-19 pandemic, forces us to adopt the concept: the IGC Invest Geothermal Conference became a hybrid meeting. 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 overviews, due dilligences and financing tools.
The next event will take place on September 28 and 29, 2021 and focus on risk mitigation and promising geothermal markets.
EGEC, the European Geothermal Energy Council, is a non-profit international organisation founded in 1998 to promote the European geothermal industry and enable its development both in Europe and worldwide, by shaping policy, improving business condition, and driving more research and development.
In this session the findings of the Georisk project of EGEC will be introduced as well as public and private risk share mechanisms.
An investor will illustrate the risks of geothermal projects from his perspective and how he wants to cope with them. Various options to reduce the risks starting with Due Dilligence and exploration until the drilling contract the the planning and execution of the drilling will be shown by experts and discussed together with the investor and the participants.
After the technical program of the event all participants are invited for a get togehter with canapés and drinks.
In the first session on the second day, three interesting geothermal markets (countries) in Middle Europe will be introduced with respect to ther geothermal areas, the installed capacity, the potential, the legal framework, the funding scheme and the risk mitigation options. In a further presentation a project of each market is presented.
In the round up session of the IGC Invest Geothermal actual developments and further actions to accelerate the geothermal development are discussed with various stakeholder also against the background of decarbonization of heating grids and the elctricity production.
