Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 13, 2014
Registration is still available for the U.S.-Turkey Geothermal Workshop on October 21-22, 2014 in Ankara, Turkey, sponsored by the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA). The workshop will connect U.S. and Turkish stakeholders to support the implementation of geothermal projects in Turkey, which is ranked first in Europe and seventh worldwide in geothermal energy. The workshop, which will be attended by public and private sector representatives from the U.S. and Turkish geothermal sectors, will feature both plenary and panel sessions, as well as business-to-business meetings and networking opportunities.
Workshop sessions will showcase:
- Existing and upcoming project opportunities in Turkey
- Government and regulatory initiatives driving investment in Turkey’s geothermal sector
- U.S. technology and best practices for geothermal project implementation
- Project financing resources for geothermal development
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, which has enabled 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. and Turkish companies to participate in this growing market by connecting them with each other to discuss ways to partner in developing the country’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 increase their profile in the Turkish market by becoming a sponsor and receiving priority involvement, including table-top exhibiting opportunities.
