Join the Americas Program for a virtual discussion on Geothermal Development in Latin America.

With its vast network of volcanoes and prevalent fault lines, Latin America is geographically positioned to benefit from harnessing the geothermal energy stored under the surface of the Earth. Countries like Costa Rica have taken the lead in using this energy to support their electricity matrices, while others struggle to draw in funding and operate in a tight regulatory environment.   

This event will identify the challenges and opportunities faced by El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Peru in harnessing geothermal energy within their territories, as well as lay out pathways for these countries to achieve their energy, economic and social goals through the development of geothermal energy. This event will also explore policies for growing investment in the region and strengthen the Latin American geothermal energy industry.

This event was made possible with the generous support of the Japan International Cooperation Agency.
