GPAC 2013: Geothermal Power Asia Congress 2013 at Jakarta

Logo GPAC 2013Event Dates: May 21-22, 2013
Location: Jakarta, Indonesia
Organized By: SZ&W Group

About the Event:

With large opportunities in Asia for geothermal energy development, there is an increased interest in geothermal power in the region accompanied by a strong energy demand.

Bestowed with nearly 40% of the world’s geothermal potential, Indonesia is on a fast-track to expand its renewable energy capacity by increasing its geothermal installed capacity to 6,000 MW by 2015, and provide 25% of the nation’s energy by 2025. This means a 14 billion USD investment will be needed if these targets are to be met.

To this end, the Indonesian Government has made progressive efforts to foster a stable and conducive environment to attract private investors’ involvement by streamlining tendering process, setting up specific geothermal fund, and more importantly, increasing feed-in-tariff for power generated from geothermal plants.

With such a background, the Geothermal Power Asia Congress 2013 is being organized by SZ&W Group to be held at Jakarta, Indonesia, from May 21-22. The event aims to provide an opportunity to meet active players across the value chain in Indonesia and neighbouring countries to share proved experience, ideas, and learn in-depth insights.

The event would feature panel discussions, exhibition, workshops and networking opportunities. ThinktoSustain.com is the Media Partner for the event.
