Geothermal energy has the potential to be the world's only renewable baseload power source. It is clean, renewable and safe. The IPGT signifies the commitment of the world's geothermal energy leaders to advance the energy through the continued development of new technologies.
Given global climate change and the world's current energy security concerns, people everywhere need a reliable baseload source of renewable energy. Of the existing renewable energies, geothermal is the only one that can fill this role. It is thus imperative that geothermal energy be made a viable possibility for societies throughout the world, irrespective of their hydrothermal resources. The IPGT is working to achieve this goal.
