There will be a range of events aimed at a variety of stakeholders including policy and scientific sessions, an exhibition, training courses, science bars, site visits and networking events.

This year the host country for the EGC is Germany. Germany is Europe's 4th largest market for geothermal energy use in district heating and cooling, and the largest one in terms of planned capacity. The EGC will be held at the Berlin Congress Centre which is in the heart of Berlin and houses a huge function room which can hold 1,000 people, along with over 30 smaller function rooms and a 3000sqm exhibition space.

Lucy will be presenting at EGC on Thursday the 20th October from 11.15am - 11.25am in room B07 & B08. She will present 'Geological Overview of the Eden Project' from an abstract including authors from Camborne School of Mines, University of Exeter, GeoScience and Eden Geothermal Ltd.

The EGC has been organised by EGEC since 2013 and past events have been located in the Netherlands, France, Italy, Hungary and Switzerland. It is the largest geothermal event in Europe and creates a unique opportunity for promoting geothermal energy, knowledge sharing and networking with a range of people in the geothermal sector.
