Alexander Richter, IGA President, had the opportunity to represent the IGA at the IRENA 10th Annual Assembly. The president showcased collaborative projects such as the pilot deployment of the UNFC Specifications in Indonesia, Caribbean and Ethiopia. He shared some details about the work done in collaboration with IRENA and the World Bank and its ESMAP program on the introduction and implementation of the UNFC Specifications for geothermal resources.

‘The work, lead by Dr. Marit Brommer, Executive Director of the IGA, was holding three workshops to introduce, train and work with geothermal resource specifications under UNFC in Indonesia, the Caribbean and Ethiopia. Initially planned to concretely apply the specifications in quantifying resources, the projects required specific capacity building efforts. This will be the next emphasis on further implementation of these efforts.
The meeting also concluded that the upcoming World Geothermal Congress 2020 in Reykjavik, Iceland will be an important event for the global geothermal community and those interested in geothermal development. Participants will be able to see and experience the different opportunities for geothermal energy utilisation and this uniquely all in a maximum one-hour radius from the venue for the event in Reykjavik. To not miss the event, make sure to register timely at https://www.wgc2020.com.’
