GRC Publishes RFP for Geothermal Energy Marketing Plan
and Website Redevelopment

The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) has issued a Request for Proposal for Assistance with a Marketing Plan and Website Redevelopment.

The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) is seeking proposals for assistance with developing our marketing plan, promotional materials and website.

The GRC has a vision to raise the recognition and acceptance of geothermal energy across society. We have focused our vision on a strategy to connect with local people and companies on the ground in our industry, to bring people together in research, industry and government, and to collaborate with partner organizations, thought leaders and decision makers around the globe.

We will be developing sharp and modern public relations that reach out across society to help promote awareness of geothermal energy: from the general public and school children, through to decision makers at the highest levels. We are transforming into an association that fights for geothermal energy to be mainstream, to bring our energy into the public conscience as much as other technologies because we recognize that society needs geothermal in the future transition to clean and renewable energy.

  • Deadline for written questions: October 31, 2019
  • Deadline for proposal submission: November 15, 2019
  • Award Announcement: December 31, 2019
