Pivot is a decade-long conference series focused on engaging oil and gas professionals in geothermal exploration and development. This year’s Pivot2021 – Geothermal Reimagined, to take place virtually July 19-23, will feature more than 165 speakers across 35 spirited sessions, with IGA members featured across a variety of sessions and topics. The agenda is exciting, with a diverse group of speakers across multiple disciplines and industries, and appearances by Sir Richard Branson, Chris Anderson and Daniel Yergin. This year, the IGA partnered with Pivot2021 to host a variety of sessions at Pivot2021, including sessions exploring offshore geothermal energy, geothermal in developing nations, and geothermal’s social license, to name a few. Pivot2021 is free to attend, but registration is required. The conference will be translated live into ten languages, and all are welcome to attend globally.
We invite you to register and explore the virtual event page here: https://geo.touchcast.com/showtime/pivot2021. If you’ve already registered, you can use your registered email address to log-in. You will use this same sign-in process to access the conference live the week of the event. If you can’t make a session or wish to watch again, all sessions will be available on demand shortly after the end of the conference.

Join a unique opportunity to develop your business, identify new projects and partnerships!

GeoDays event organized by our partner Avenia in collaboration with AFPG is 100% digital and will cover multiple topics. Speakers from around the world will talk about business and innovation in such sectors as oil & gas, deep geothermal, mining and quarries with a particular focus on exploration of domestic resources, seismicity estimation and simulation methodologies in subsurface activities.

Key six target sectors being covered at the event are:

(PRESS RELEASE, Berlin, 9th of June 2021) Dr. Erwin Knapek, President of the German Geothermal Association, on the partnership: “In order to strengthen the country community of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, we recently extended the editorial responsibilities of our magazine Geothermal Energy to the geothermal associations of Switzerland and Austria. Consequently, it was also obvious for us to show this newly strengthened cooperation at this year’s Geothermal Congress.” As the congress is planned again on location in the City of Essen this year, joint and independent workshops of the partner countries are also to be held there.

“We are looking forward to the first-time cooperation of the geothermal associations in the DACH region for the Geothermal Congress and are convinced that increased joint communication in the German-speaking region in the future will improve the visibility and relevance of geothermal energy to decision-makers,” said Dr. Peter Seifert, chairman of the Geothermal Association of Austria.

The president of Geothermie-Schweiz, Nathalie Andenmatten Berthoud, also knows the value of international cooperation: “It makes it possible to benefit from each other’s expertise, improve common practices, and generally make better use of the potential of geothermal energy in the countries. With this in mind, Geothermal Switzerland has already entered into a partnership with the French association in 2019. I am very pleased that we are now intensifying this exchange in the German-speaking region as well.”

The call for papers is currently running until 30th of June and invites interested parties to submit recent scientific results.

The congress will take place from November 30 to December 2, 2021 at the Haus der Technik in the City of Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia.

IGA Asia Western Pacific Regional Branch cordially invites you to a webinar titled “Is mineral recovery the future of the geothermal industry?” that takes place on 9 July 2021, 15:00 – 15:30 (NZT).

The presentation will cover the journey from to commercialisation of Geo40’s silica recovery technology. This includes the challenges of developing a mineral recovery process in a geothermal environment and the opportunities it presents for the geothermal operators. It will also touch on the market for recovered silica and how it could have a major positive impact on the environment.

The participation is free of charge! Register here: https://www.xperto.ph/event/awprbwebinar

The New Zealand Geothermal Workshop is proud to announce that the 43rd Geothermal Workshop will take place in Wellington at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa from 23-25th November 2021.

We will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation in regards to government alert levels and public health safety. As we receive further clarity surrounding what the second half of the year will look like we expect to respond by tailoring the delivery of the Workshop accordingly, which may include the possibility of date or format changes. As planning continues we will communicate all updates via email and website notices on www.geothermalwokshop.co.nz

In collaboration with the COP26 Climate Champions team and SME Climate Hub, a group of renewable industry associations (Global Wind Energy Council, Global Solar Council, International Geothermal Association and International Hydropower Association) is supporting renewable small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to join the UN Race to Zero campaign!

The SME Climate Hub, an initiative of the International Chamber of Commerce, the Exponential Roadmap Initiative, the We Mean Business coalition and the UN Race to Zero campaign, is a pioneering platform that aims to streamline the path for SMEs to become climate-resilient businesses and help green solutions get to market.

The SME Climate Hub will allow your small business to:

  • Make an internationally recognised climate commitment that meets the UN net zero criteria;
  • Access practical tools and resources to help you future-proof your business; and
  • Benefit from incentives with commercial value.

Who should join this workshop?

  • SMEs of less than 500 employees globally in the wind, solar and renewables sector
  • SMEs interested in making a net-zero commitment, and seeking further resources and support
  • SMEs intent on making a net-zero commitment, and seeking to maximise visibility and
    communications opportunities

Please register here by Monday 17 May 2021. We are looking forward to engaging with you at this workshop in May, and accelerating the Race to Zero as a renewables sector.

German Geothermal Association (BVG) starts Call for Papers for the Geothermal Congress taking place 30 November – 2 December 2021 in Essen, Germany.

Planning for this year’s congress edition is already in full swing. There will be thematic diversity in 2021: in addition to the cross-cutting topics of sector coupling, legal framework conditions for the heat transition, heat pumps, and heat grids and
storage, there will also be specific focal points for deep and near-surface geothermal energy.

For deep geothermal energy, the focus will be on exploration, material use, medium-depth geothermal energy, and the complex of reservoir development and management. In the area of near-surface geothermal energy, concepts for cost reduction and measures to increase efficiency will be covered, as will cold local heating networks and neighborhood concepts, as well as quality assurance and groundwater protection. In addition, other scientific topics on geothermal energy can also be submitted.

With a call for papers, the German Geothermal Association invites interested scientists and projects to present their current scientific findings at the DGK. Young scientists are also invited to participate in the “Science Bar”. This poster competition offers the opportunity to present bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral theses on the topic of geothermal energy to a broad professional audience. The best presentation will be awarded the Young Scientist Award of the Bundesverband Geothermie e.V. (German Geothermal Association).
