You are here



At the Workshop on the Risk Sharing Mechanism (RSM) presentations will be given by the World Bank, TKB and the technical consultant that has been contracted to support TKB in the preparation and management of the RSM. The goal of the workshop is to give geothermal developers active in geothermal exploration in Turkey an overview of the structure, terms and conditions of the RSM, the nature of the information beneficiaries need present in their applications for partial cost coverage by the RSM, and the timeline of the preparation of the RSM, specifically when the first round of applications will be launched.The Workshop is translated simultaneously from English to Turkish and vice versa.
