The Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) is a trade association comprised of U.S. companies who support the expanded use of geothermal energy and are developing geothermal resources worldwide for electrical power generation and direct-heat uses. Activities of the GEA include advocating for public policies that will promote the development and utilization of geothermal resources, providing a forum for the industry to discuss issues and problems, encouraging research and development to improve geothermal technologies, presenting industry views to governmental organizations, providing assistance for the export of geothermal goods and services, compiling statistical data about the geothermal industry, and conducting education and outreach projects.

Why Attend GEA Events?
As the national trade association for the geothermal industry, the GEA creates and delivers 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. GEA events provide important opportunities to learn and network within the geothermal community as well as inform and educate companies and organizations outside today’s industry that are interested in learning more. The revenue generated from GEA events is used to advance the goal “to expand the production and use of geothermal energy in the U.S. and around the world” through future events, PR and 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. GEA does not sell your email or postal address to junk mailers or spammers.
