The CROWDTHERMAL project aims at empowering the European public to participate directly in developing geothermal projects with the help of alternative financing schemes and social engagement tools.

The Icelandic CROWDTHERMAL partners Eimur and GEORG are hosting a conference on the 14th of September in Húsavík, Iceland. The conference will be streamed and openly accessible to those who register via the following link:

The conference will touch upon the topics relevant to the CROWDTHERMAL Icelandic case study, where rural innovation is an essential element in addition to the core social and financial elements that have been developed in the CROWDTHERMAL project. Icelandic speakers and international guests will help us shed the light on the interplay between geothermal energy development, rural innovation, community engagement, and crowdfunding.
