GEA Events
As the national trade association for the geothermal industry, the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) strives to create and deliver educational events involving the full range of the geothermal industry, reflecting the dynamic growth of the geothermal market, and communicating the benefits of geothermal energy to all. GEA events offer important opportunities to learn and network within the geothermal community, and to inform and educate companies and organizations outside today’s industry that are interested in learning more about geothermal energy. The revenue generated from GEA events is used to advance the goal of the GEA, "to expand the production and use of geothermal energy in the United States and around the world." The revenue supports GEA’s workshops and events, communications activities, outreach efforts, policy related activities and analysis, internet publications, and other initiatives designed to help achieve this goal. ONLY GEA puts your dollars to work in all of these ways to advance the future of the geothermal energy industry.

  • March 27-28, 2014 Natonal Renewable Energy Policy Forum, Washington, DC

    U.S. renewable energy and fossil fuel energy markets are rapidly evolving as industry innovates and deploys new technology, paving the way for a rebirth of U.S. energy production leadership.   The U.S. renewable energy industry is one of the fastest growing sectors of the US economy presenting important economic and environmental security opportunities.   Since 2008, surpassing all other sources, more than 37% of all new U.S. power capacity has been generated by renewable energy resources.  Renewable fuels and electric vehicles are enabling customer choice and breaking our century long dependence on a single fuel source.   A combination of private sector investment and innovation, as well as, federal and state policy has driven substantial renewable energy cost reduction, scale-up and an expanding value chain throughout the country. 

    As these power and transportation markets develop, policy needs to evolve to keep up with the pace of and foster even greater innovation.  Industry needs a consistent and long-term policy to optimize investment, development and use of the nation’s abundant and cost-competitive renewable energy resources.   ACORE’s National Renewable Energy Policy Forum will convene the renewable energy industry to chart the path forward for pro-growth, constructive and bipartisan renewable energy policy that will foster additional private sector investment and innovation. 

    Join renewable energy leaders and policy makers from Capitol Hill and across the country as we assess renewable energy market growth and make the case for a coherent, long-term and consistent federal policy framework to accelerate the transformation of our nation’s energy sector.
