Bringing Andean Geothermal to Life

How do you ensure your geothermal plants go online and operate in time?
After four years of wait, Chile is set to open its first geothermal plant to bring 367 GW-hours of electricity to power the country’s northern grid at the end of 2016. And other LAC countries are following suit. But technical and financing challenges have caused very painful project delays.

To succeed in LAC geothermal energy business, you need financing networks and credible technical partners to get plants to go online and operate within deadline and budget. Attend LAC Geothermal Energy Summit 2016 by emailing geoCL@arcmediaglobal.com or visiting www.arcmediaglobal.com/geoCL!
