After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the Canadian Geothermal Summit 2020 Conference for one year to October 2021(New date to be announced soon). We feel that it is best if the Conference remains a space in which students, speakers, and attendees have the opportunity to convene and fully participate in these conversations live in person.
Sadly, the spread of the coronavirus makes it impossible to gather in September, and it would be irresponsible of us to encourage attendance when those who come, could be exposed. We are most grateful for your ongoing support, and the success of our meetings, and the geothermal industry. We look forward to seeing you in 2021. Stay tuned, you will hear from us soon again.
