New Energy Future being nurtured in Bali. As the ministers, dignitaries and experts from different countries gather in Bali to participate in the World Geothermal Congress and Exhibition 2010 from 25-30 April 2010, the stage is set for exchange of ideas and sharing of experiences not only on technical and financing aspects but also on policy and global politics of the energy sector. Highlights of the event include high powered panel discussions, Chief Executive Officer summit, Exhibition and a Bali Declaration by the Congress participants.

The climate change issue and more recently, the energy security concerns triggered by the oil price hike have resulted in geothermal energy resource emerging as a mainstream energy option.

Worldwide geothermal power capacity approached 10GWe at the end of 2006 and is expected to increase by another 2GWe by 2010. In Indonesia more than 1000 MW of geothermal power capacity has been installed. Not surprising therefore, that WGC2010 has received an overwhelming response from all over the world. Participants from 80 countries are expected to participate in this mega event of the year and 800 presentations will highlight the latest development in worldwide geothermal energy utilization. The congress has other than academicians, experts and policy makers, also participants from the leading geothermal industry players. We will respond to the call for papers and the stage is set for high level deliberations on key issues such as Keynotes, Case Histories, Country Updates, Environmental and Societal Aspects, Legal and Regulatory Aspects, Economic and Financing, Privatization. Sustainability, Geosciences, Engineering and Reservoir Engineering, Drilling Technology, Grid Integration, possible role of international renewable energy agency and climate change.

WGC2010 is supported by many governments with high-level representatives attending from China, Germany, Iceland, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, New Zealand, The Philippines, Uganda and USA. And also from international institutions and financial organizations such as The World Bank, UNEP and European Union.
