DOE Announces International Partnership for Geothermal Technology Site
November 20, 2008
The International Partnership for Geothermal Technology (IPGT) announced the completion of its new International Partnership for Geothermal Technology Web site. The IGPT Charter Agreement was signed on August 28, 2008 by representatives from Australia, Iceland and the United States in Keflavik, Iceland in order to accelerate the development of geothermal technology through international cooperation.
The new Web site will be used to publicize the partnership’s activities and increase the understanding of advanced geothermal technologies such as Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS). The partnership encourages a broad range of participation in its projects and encourages interested parties to use the Web site to follow its progress and learn about both ongoing and future projects.
The site will provide a forum for government and industry leaders to coordinate their efforts and collaborate on projects. Partners will share information on results and best practices in order to avoid blind alleys, limit unnecessary duplication, and efficiently accelerate the development of geothermal technologies.
