The Praxisforum Geothermie.Bayern

In the South of Bavaria exists worldwide unique conditions for geothermal low-enthalpy energy production. More than 20 projects are already operating, furhter are under construction and in planning. The Praxisforum Geothermie.Bayern from October 16 to 17, 2018 offers the possibility to profit from the experiences and the know-how of the local actors and build up useful contacts. In the heart of Bavaria - in the center of Germany's energy production.

Continously growing interest

Since the first event in 2013 the interest in the Praxisforum Geothermie.Bayern grows continously. Meanwhile the participants doubled and in 2016 the event became international, integrating a simultaneous translation. One of the benefirts of the event ist the independent program management with several invited speakers in step with actual practice related to the topics in focus. In additions to the presentations there is also plenty of room for discussions about topical foci and possibilities to connect. The Praxisforum-Lounge after the congress, where all participants, speakers and sponsors are invited, perfects the two days event.
