  • GEA Baseload Renewable Energy Summit June 7-8, 2016, Reno, NV

    The Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) is pleased to be holding its fifth annual National Geothermal Summit early this summer, but with a twist. This year, the leading forum for western state policy discussions will team up with the National Hydropower Association (NHA), and the Biomass Power Association (BPA) to create a new spin on the annual event. The Baseload Renewable Energy Summit will be held on June 7-8, 2016 at the Grand Sierra in Reno, NV. 

    This year’s Baseload Renewable Energy Summit will feature the combined voices of three major baseload renewables. 

    Geothermal, hydropower, and biomass often face similar problems at three main levels- political, financial, and societal. The Summit will focus on voicing key issues faced by the geothermal industry to both state and federal policy makers. In parallel to this, industry experts in hydropower and biomass will join panel discussions to shed light on the critical importance of baseload, renewable energy sources for grid reliability, reducing carbon dioxide emissions, and meeting rising energy demand.
