We’d like to include you in upcoming World Geothermal Energy Day events and celebrations on October 17th.

World Geothermal Energy Day

  • Showcasing geothermal success around the globe
  • People engaging together with ideas, education, and excitement.
  • A celebration of geothermal and the people who make it happen.
  • Highlighting the environmentally-friendly benefits of renewable geothermal, worldwide.

About World Geothermal Energy Day
This is the one day when people around the globe celebrate the virtues and benefits of geothermal energy, open their shops for tours (both virtual and physical), discuss new technologies, and work to include geothermal in legislation at the local, regional, national, and international levels.

The Hashtag is #WorldGeothermalEnergyDay

Date: October 17, 2021; and annually thereafter.

Raising Awareness
World Geothermal Energy Day aims to raise awareness of the many positive contributions that geothermal systems make to our society. World Geothermal Energy Day celebrates the people that design, build, operate and support the broad range of technologies from large power systems, heat pump systems, down to tiny micro-thermal.

A Team of Industry Leaders
This event has been established by an organizing committee of industry leaders (see web site www.WorldGeothermalEnergyDay.org) to bring participants closer to exemplary geothermal projects having a good educational and community outreach program.

The Internet Brings Us All Together
Connecting with one another and sharing expertise is critical for everyone working in the geothermal market. World Geothermal Energy Day helps keep these connections alive not only on this one special day but also provides the impetus for enthusiasm all year round. We are building our future together, on local and global scales; different people and places united in a drive for vibrant communities of geothermal advocates. The internet, the world wide web, social media, and the newest video conference technologies bring us together in ways not possible even a few short years ago.

Join Us for World Geothermal Energy Day
We invite you to learn more about this exciting new chapter in Geothermal Energy education and all its connective elements, from a new website to centralized virtual events, to a history-making celebration of people, technology, and innovation. We shall strive to make World Geothermal Energy Day one of our most prized annual events, to include tours of facilities brought to life by geothermal including power facilities, desalinization plants, botanic gardens, edgy restaurants, schools and universities, medical facilities, and more, all opening on October 17, 2021.

Highlighting Innovation
As the industry continues its legacy of innovation, World Geothermal Energy Day will remain an annual touchstone project and a world apart filled with memorable moments and educational experiences. Our organizing website, www.WorldGeothermalEnergyDay.org will remain operational year-round, open, and ready to be explored and enjoyed by teachers, practitioners, and friends of geothermal energy.

Come Join Us
We are honored to launch, enhance and steward appreciation for one of the world’s most important, most environmentally friendly energy sources; earth-based, renewable geothermal and we invite you to learn more about “geothermal reimagined” along the way.

Share the Passion for Geothermal
For geothermal advocates and leaders, World Geothermal Energy Day is an opportunity for both the technical geothermal community and their business development peers to share in their mutual passion while preserving and promoting relationships, traditions, and shared memories. Swing open the doors (both virtually and physically) and have some fun while also educating those who attend.

February 9, 2021 – Cash Training Grants now to upskill your employees!

The Smart Energy Initiative of Southeastern PA was just awarded grant monies to give to employers to offset up to 50% of the costs of “approved” training topics. Please see the attached training plan >> SEI Training Plan of Courses and SOC Codes for Training Application 2021 for list of approved courses. If you have IT people needing training our IT partnership, ITAG, has grants too. If the topic you want isn’t listed call Jim Lauckner at 610-321-8231 and he’ll discuss the possibility of getting approval. Or email Jim at jlauckner@ccedcpa.com

We are not offering training direct through SEI, but instead the grant applicant finds the education provider they want to use and shows us an invoice and finally a proof of payment for that course. With a completed application SEI can reimburse up to 50% of the training cost that was paid by the employer of the trainee.

The cash grant is available first come, first served until the monies are spent. Our program year ends June 30, 2021.

This assistance is being made available by the Smart Energy Initiative of SE PA (SEI), an initiative of the Chester County Workforce Development Board and the Chester County Economic Development Council with grant funds received from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry.
