Geothermal energy in my back yard: tackling energy poverty with renewables

25th June 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The COVID19 pandemic created a severe economic crisis and has crashed the prices of oil and gas on global markets. Within this context, there is an opportunity to invest in the geothermal industry, as most of the exploration infrastructure and expertise in the oil & gas sector are also being used in geothermal.

This webinar discusses with major energy players how the geothermal sector can turn the current oil crisis and climate emergency into an opportunity for a post Covid-19 Green Recovery.
