About the European Geothermal Congress

The largest geothermal event in Europe

The European Geothermal Congress (EGC) is the biggest event that brings together the entire European geothermal sector, and attracts hundreds of people from Europe and around the world. Organised every 3 years, the congress continues the series of European geothermal events that originated under the IGA (International Geothermal Association) umbrella, the most recent of which have been EGC 2019 in The Hague, Netherlands; EGC 2016 in Strasbourg, France; EGC 2013 in Pisa, Italy; EGC 2007 in Unterhaching (Munich), Germany; EGC 2003 in Szeged, Hungary; and EGC 1999 in Basel, Switzerland.

Since 2013, the European Geothermal Congress is organised by EGEC, the European Geothermal Energy Council (copyright n°1284839), which is the trade association for geothermal in Europe. Every edition is co-organised by a national member of EGEC.
