At 50 years old, our association continues to be relevant and exciting to people all around the world, both Inside and outside of the geothermal community, by spearheading a movement for change. That movement champions the use of Earth's heat for equitable, renewable, and reliable power generation, heating, and cooling, supporting a diverse industry and secure and inclusive energy supplies for all.
