  • France : E.ON and Sungevity Announce Go Solar Programme
    July 31, 2015
    The state visit of France’s minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy Segolene Royal to Iceland was marked by the signing of a bilateral cooperation agreement on the development of geothermal energy. The French Geothermal Cluster GEODEEP and its sister organisation - the Iceland Geothermal Cluster Initiative, on Wednesday agreed to cooperate in creating a framework of standardized model licenses for exploring, realizing, and developing geothermal energy resources.

    This landmark agreement between the two clusters could easily serve to build a general consensus for developing geothermal projects worldwide. It will also push forward the global expansion of geothermal energy and the set up of a Global Geothermal Alliance (GGA), which will be formally launched at COP21 in Paris later this year.
