Regional Geothermal Knowledge Gateway Latin America

 América Latina es un mercado geotérmico en crecimiento. La IGA quiere apoyar y participar activamente con todos los interesados nacionales y regionales. Para iniciar el diálogo y apoyar a la industria se estableció este Portal Geotérmico Regional de América Latina (Regional Geothermal Knowledge Gateway Latin America).

Esta plataforma ofrece documentos nacionales y regionales con información sobre la situación de la energía geotérmica, y sus aspectos regulatorios, así como enlaces a portales de instituciones relacionadas en la region latinoamericana y del Caribe. Si tiene usted información que desee compartir, no dude en escribirnos para incorporarla en esta sección.

 As Latin America is a growing market for geothermal energy use, we want to actively support and engage with national and regional stakeholders. To start the dialogue and support the industry the Regional Geothermal Knowledge Gateway was established.

It provides national and regional geothermal energy status updates, national regulatory information and website links to relevant institutions in the region. Feel free to approach us with further information and data which can be incorporated on this platform.
