GTP conducts its first Online Course on Geothermal Energy

21 April 2021
The course "Online Course on Geothermal Energy" was aimed at decision makers in our cooperation countries in an effort to increase their interests in developing their geothermal resources, and present to them all the possibilities geothermal energy has to offer.
This series was focused on Africa but similar courses are planned for Asia and Latin America & and the Caribbean later this year.
Many of our former fellows and Iceland's leading geothermal experts presented and discussed the extensive potential and economic viability of the resource, ranging from power production to cosmetic production to aquaculture, and the related benefits.
The course was very well received and the number of attendees exceeded all expectations but we had around 200 registered participants from 32 countries but more followed the course behind the scenes.  This  new venue represents new grounds for GTP to share the geothermal knowledge even further and more accessibly.  
A total of 31 presenters contributed their knowledge and expertise, and we would like to thank them for their input and assistance in launching this course.
