IGC Turkey 2018

You are here


IGC Turkey 2018 - 3rd International Geothermal Energy Congress & Exhibition takes place on March 14-15, 2018 in Sheraton Ankara Hotel & Convention Center, featuring an extensive program. The World Bank Group is co-hosting the IGC Turkey Congress and our co-partners are EGEC, ISPAT, JESDER, JKBB and TJD.

The Turkish Geothermal Energy Market has seen an incredible growth over the past few years from 30 MW installed power generation capacity in 2008 to 1100 MW as of January 2018. No other country has shown such an incredible fast and sustainable growth of its geothermal sector as Turkey has over the past 10 years.

The two-day event will bring together investors and financiers, license holders, developers, operators, suppliers, geoscientists, academicians, municipalities and authorities in the Sheraton Convention Center in Ankara, co-hosted by the World Bank. The event, featuring workshops, a trade show exhibition and congress will discuss will showcase geothermal projects worldwide, feed-in tariffs and funding schemes, economy of scale and cost reduction potentials, environmental impacts and explore prospects for the development of heat and electricity producing plants. There will also be a specific emphasis on financing and funding for geothermal projects in Turkey with a special workshop with the World Bank and TKB on the new Risk Sharing Mechanism being introduced for geothermal development in Turkey.

For the IGC Turkey 2018, we expect 500+ high level delegates to discuss the challenges of the most fastest growing geothermal market in the world. With synchronous translation for Turkish to English and English to Turkish, the congress is accessible to both Turkish and international participants.

Looking forward meeting you there.
