The launch of GEOLAC in 2012 reflected the emergence of geothermal as a long-term source of baseload power for Latin America and the Caribbean. 100 participants from 21 countries, including senior officials from eight regional governments, participated in the inaugural event.
Two years on, and the prospects for the development of LAC geothermal are stronger than ever. The prevailing economic climate is markedly more confident, multilaterals are moving aggressively to mobilize resources, and well-capitalized developers are targeting proven resources region-wide.
Co-Hosted this year by The World Bank, GEOLAC 2014 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.
2014 may prove to be a watershed year for the development of geothermal in Latin America & the Caribbean. Join us at GEOLAC in Costa Rica.
