The Geoscience part of the World Geothermal Congress, 2020+1, virtual event is on tomorrow

The Geoscience part of the World Geothermal Congress, 2020+1, virtual event is on tomorrow, May 11th and 12th. ÍSORS´ experts will give 20 prensentations related to the follwing topics: exploration, geology, geophysics, geochemistry, resource assessment and field management

The world's largest geothermal exhibition, World Geothermal Congress 2020, WGC2020 + 1, will be held in Iceland this year. The World Geothermal Congress is a unique event that brings together members of the geothermal community across the globe. It is also an event, where geothermal experts show how geothermal energy will help us create a sustainable future together.
The conference was officially launched virtually on March 30 and will have several online events on the following dates: April 13, May 11-12, June 15, July 6.
Icelanders are proud to host the conference this year. Harnessing geothermal energy has had an incredible impact on the quality of life in Iceland. It was an important part in Iceland‘s complete switch to renewable energy in both space-heating and electricity production. Iceland also pioneered the cascading use of geothermal which has created innovative products. Geothermal energy is an essential part of Iceland‘s sustainability story. Watch more on YouTube video.
