Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 09, 2014
The U.S. Trade and Development Agency will host an interactive two-day technical workshop in Ankara, Turkey to be attended by public and private sector representatives from the U.S. and Turkish geothermal sectors. The workshop, which will take place October 21-22, 2014, will feature both plenary and breakout sessions on a variety of topics, and will provide many networking opportunities.
Turkey has vast geothermal potential: It is projected that 5% of Turkey’s electricity demand and 30% of its heat energy demand can be met through geothermal production. In December 2010, the Government of Turkey established feed-in tariffs, enabling increased development and opportunities for investment. Nearly 20 geothermal energy developers are already engaged in seismic work, power production and extensive exploration drilling.
The workshop will provide opportunities for U.S. companies to participate in this growing market by connecting them with Turkish decision-makers to discuss ways to partner in developing Turkey’s geothermal resources. It will expose Turkish participants to state-of-the-art U.S. technologies, equipment and services as well as policies, regulations and financing mechanisms that can support the implementation of geothermal projects.
In addition to attending the workshop, U.S. companies can grow their presence in the Turkish market by becoming a sponsor and receiving priority involvement, including table-top exhibiting opportunities.
