RENO (September 26, 2012) -When the GEA Geothermal Energy Expo kicks off this Sunday, Sept. 30 at the Peppermill Resort & Casino in Reno, more than 2,000 attendees will walk the Expo Hall featuring more than 150 exhibitors representing the world’s leading geothermal companies, government agencies and higher-education institutions from the United States and 11 other countries. The GEA Expo, hosted by the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA), is the world’s largest gathering of the geothermal business community and a chance for the industry to showcase the latest in geothermal. This year’s exhibitor list is among the most diverse in the event’s history.
“The geothermal industry is built on innovation and constant technological advancement, and this fact is evident while walking through the Expo Hall,” said GEA Executive Director Karl Gawell. “Our member companies and exhibitors will be showcasing the latest in geothermal technology, which are paving the way for a clean energy future.”
The United States will be represented at the Expo by exhibitors from 28 states.

“It is encouraging to see such a strong global showing at the Expo,” added Gawell. “So many countries around the world have geothermal potential, and they are excited to share their successes with the rest of the international geothermal community.”
