The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy of Korea (MOTIE) invites you to the Korea International Renewable Energy Conference (KIREC Seoul 2019), which will take place on 23–25 October 2019 at COEX in Seoul, Republic of Korea.

The Korean government has formulated the 3rd Energy Basic Plan, the Renewable Energy 2030 Action Plan and the Hydrogen Economy Roadmap. In particular, Korea has established a goal to boost the share of renewable energy to 30~35% from its current 7% by 2040 and to increase the share of hydrogen in the final energy supply to 5% by 2040.

With its ambitious national drive for energy transition, MOTIE and SMG are hosting the 8th International Renewable Energy Conference (IREC). KIREC Seoul 2019 will provide a global platform for ministers, mayors, high-level decision makers, experts, specialists and thought leaders, as well as private sector players and civil society, to discuss and share their vision, experience and solutions to accelerate the global uptake of renewable energy.

The IGA will be there to demonstrate success stories on renewable heating and cooling, direct use of (deep) geothermal and geothermal to power. We thank our partner REN21 for their commitment to keep renewable energy as a priority of change.

The climate crisis is an emergency. On Sept 20, people are joining youth-led #ClimateStrike actions in more than 150 countries worldwide demanding that leaders respond to this emergency. Join here at globalclimatestrike.net.

A New Era for the Geoscientist

15 – 16 October 2019 | Edinburgh, United Kingdom

The “AAPG Energy Transition Forum – A New Era for Geoscience” in Amsterdam, September 2018, brought together expert speakers and distinguished participants to discuss the Future of Energy, Sustainability, Digitalisation, and Skills and New Ways of Working. Sessions provided thought-provoking presentations and interactive breakout sessions utilising a variety of facilitation styles to maximise engagement.

For 2019, the event will build on the discussions that took place in 2018, but being reframed with a greater focus on the individual in a New Era for the Geoscientist the dilemmas that keep him or her up at night, and the skills that might help unlock future opportunities.

7th European Geothermal Workshop dedicated to a characterization of deep geothermal systems aims at discussing new approaches, methods or data in the fields of deep geothermal reservoirs for energy exploitation, with a strong focus on on-going research. It proposes a platform of scientific exchange, especially between PhD students and scientists.

Also, during the workshop the results of GeMex project – cooperation in geothermal energy research Europe-Mexico for EGS – will be presented. The leading researchers will share the results from technology development for superhot geothermal reservoirs as well as outcome of their investigations in Los Humeros and Acoculco, Mexico.
