The European Geothermal Congress (EGC) is organised by EGEC in cooperation with Stichting Platform Geothermie (SPG) and BodemenergieNL.
EGEC, the European Geothermal Energy Council, is a non-profit international organisation founded in 1998 to promote the European geothermal industry and enable its development both in Europe and worldwide, by shaping policy, improving business condition, and driving more research and development. Based in Brussels, it works with its members on policy, market intelligence, and communication, providing a link between the industry and European institutions. More than 120 members from 28 countries, including developers, equipment manufacturers, electricity providers, national associations, consultants, research centres, geological surveys, and public authorities, make EGEC a unique network, uniting and representing the entire geothermal sector.
Stichting Platform Geothermie (SPG) consists of approximately 85 participants who share an interest in the development of geothermal energy in The Netherlands. Members are governmental organisations (provinces, regions, municipalities), knowledge institutes and a wide variety of companies. This last group consists of suppliers of products and services (both technical and financial/organisational), energy companies and a growing group of owners of (future) geothermal installations (licence holders/applicants).
BodemenergieNL is the sector organization for all companies and organizations that operate in the sector of ground energy. It combines various forms of ground energy (ground heat exchangers, underground energy storage, geothermal energy, etc.) and ti is committed to support the responsible growth and high-quality application of ground energy systems.
