In the build-up to the 2019 Geothermal Congress for Latin America and the Caribbean, there will be a complementary webinar focused on the future for geothermal in Chile and Argentina.
Despite the existence of a substantial resource in both countries, only one project – Cerro Pabellon in Chile – has made it to market. Both governments, however, are placing a new emphasis on geothermal in their resource planning.
- How is that emphasis reflected in policy?
- What are the terms of engagement for private sector investors?
- How active are the DFIs and what programs are available to support the public and private sector in both markets?
- Is there a future for direct use geothermal?
