ACI’s 6th Global Geothermal Energy Summit will return to Amsterdam, the Netherlands. With The Dutch governments ambitious plans to have all residential buildings to be off gas in 2050, geothermal energy has an important part to play in this transition. The conference will give the latest updates on the global geothermal energy market and its new developments. Showcasing new techniques and technologies that are paving the way for the sector and expanding the geographical regions where exploration can take place.
This year the Dutch government will invest €300 million in a series of measures aimed at reducing emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the Netherlands.
