The NGAP Webinar series spans over 3 days (October 7, 14, 21) of mini-conference (2 hrs each day) where latest topics on Digital Applications, Operational Challenges and Drilling are presented by colleagues from the Geothermal industry in the Philippines and New Zealand.


Learn how supervised machine learning helps in well output estimation, advances in online scale dissolution reduces injection wells downtime, and drilling benchmarking and technologies reduce drilling costs.

Parhelion is an energy and climate risk finance company specialising in non-traditional risk issues impacting investment in to clean energy and climate finance markets. Parhelion has developed a Geothermal Resource Risk Insurance that covers a pre-determined number of wells with a pre-agreed drilling and testing schedule. It is designed to be flexible to an individual project’s needs.

We invite yout to participate in the IGC webinar “Risk finance for geothermal resource development” that takes place on 4 September 2020. Julian Richardson (Parhelion) and Alexander Richter (Thinkgeoenergy) will discuss the company’s efforts to insure geothermal projects and climate finance.

The presentation will illustrate how the use of magnetic ranging technology is proven to expand the scope of what’s possible within various well construction, completions, and intervention applications. Gunnar Energy Services, lead by innovator and industry SME Clinton Moss, will overview the capabilities of existing ranging technologies and a new strategy to deliver subsurface closed-loop production for future Geothermal assets.

The Covid-19 pandemic has created the biggest global crisis in generations, aside from the climate crisis. While some of the lockdown measures are being eased, governments are devising stimulus and recovery packages to shape societies and economies for years to come.

Over the last months, we have seen how the proportion of energy supply met by renewables has reached historic highs in China, Europe, India, the UK, and the USA. This continues a trend seen since 2011. But the pace of change is not enough to meet the United Nations 2030 Agenda and the Paris Climate Agreement. A global green recovery is needed. Increasing the investment priorities in renewables will fuel economic growth, create employment opportunities, enhance human welfare, and contribute to a climate-safe future. Bioenergy, geothermal, hydropower, solar and wind offer ready solutions to combat climate change; sustainable, decarbonized economies; and resilient inclusive societies.

The webinar will focus on the trends and opportunities for how bioenergy, geothermal, hydropower, solar and wind technologies can work together to create a ‘green COVID-19 recovery’. Speakers representing each of these technologies will present how renewables working together can build on Covid-19 recovery strategies to scale up climate action and accelerate access to clean, safe, reliable, and affordable energy for all.

Speakers include:

  • Eddie Rich, Chair of Ren Alliance
  • Rana Adib, Executive Secretary at REN21
  • Roland Roesch, Deputy Director, IRENA Innovation and Technology Center
  • Paolo Frankl, Head of the Renewable Energy Division at IEA
  • Bharadwaj Kummamuru, Executive Director at the World Bioenergy Association (WBA)
  • Marit Brommer, Executive Director at the International Geothermal Association (IGA)
  • Cristina Diez Santos, Senior Analyst at the International Hydropower Association (IHA)
  • Stefan Gsänger, Secretary General at World Wind Energy Association (WWEA)
  • David Renne, Former President at the International Solar Energy Society (ISES)

Date/ Time: Tue, Jun 30, 2020 2:00 PM – 3:15 PM CEST
