The Geothermal Energy Association is a trade association composed of companies who support the expanded use of geothermal energy and are developing geothermal resources worldwide for electrical power generation and direct-heat uses.
To expand geothermal, the GEA advocates for public policies that will promote the development and utilization of geothermal Resources, provides a forum for the industry to discuss issues and problems, encourages research and development to improve geothermal technologies, presents industry views to governmental organizations, provides assistance for the export of geothermal goods and services, compiles statistical data about the geothermal industry, and conducts education and outreach projects.
The challenges have never been greater for geothermal energy. Both at the state and federal level changes are underway that could lead to sustained industry growth, or possibly not! Some will just sit back and wait to see what happens, but some will join GEA and get organized to make a difference.
We will be working hard to shape the industry for tomorrow. GEA’s role has never been more vital as we endeavor to expand the use of this clean, renewable, sustainable energy source and continue our work advocating for the industry.
Membership dues provide the bulk of financial support for GEA and directly determine whether or not we have the resources to educate policy makers on critical industry issues, organize events, produce geothermal industry data, reports, and publications, engage the press in an aggressive public relations effort and more. If you are wondering about why more is not being done, ask yourself …are you a member and supporter or GEA?
GEA membership offers a range of material benefits as well, including listing in GEA’s member database with a link to your company web site, discounts on all event registrations and a special exhibit fee at the GEA GEOEXPO+, and access to exclusive member-only meetings and workshops.
