In the wake of a record year for GEOLAC in 2017, the 5th Geothermal Congress for Latin America & the Caribbean (GEOLAC) will take place in Mexico City on July 17-18, 2018.
Prices for solar and wind PPAs are smashing records region-wide. How is this impacting geothermal development? Are governments valuing geothermal appropriately given its ability to deliver firm capacity? What impact will the flow of new funds from the multilaterals have on the competitiveness of geothermal?
Working alongside our co-hosts at the World Bank Group and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), GEOLAC 2018 will gather key stakeholders – governments, utilities, multilaterals, developers, capital providers, and other providers of expertise – to explore opportunities for increased geothermal output, tackle obstacles to development, promote the exchange of knowledge and expertise, and facilitate vital new meetings and relationships.
Ultimately, GEOLAC will serve to catalyze the development of world-class geothermal projects in Latin America & the Caribbean.
