“With over 30 speakers already confirmed, the Showcase will present participants a view of the tapestry of geothermal developments around the world,” commented Karl Gawell, GEA’s Executive Director. To emphasize the clean energy attributes of geothermal power, the program is being held on Earth Day.

Ali Zaidi, Deputy Director for Energy Policy, White House Domestic Policy Council, will present keynote remarks and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) will present a video opening greeting to attendees.

In addition to examining geothermal power projects around the world, panels will present leading market analysis discussing the state of the geothermal sector, a top level expert discussion of geothermal project risk reduction, and presentations from leading financial institutions including the World Bank, the Export-Import Bank of the U.S., and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation.

The event will also mark the release of GEA’s 2014 Global Market Update. In the 2013 report, over 70 countries were identified with geothermal power projects or prospects. “We expect 2014 to be an exciting year, with new projects coming on line every month,” noted Ben Matek, GEA Industry Analyst.

GEA is pleased to be holding the Showcase with support from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the U.S. Department of State, the International Trade Administration, U.S. Energy Association, Export-Import Bank of the U.S., and the U.S. Department of Energy Geothermal Technologies Office.
