This webinar series was created to discuss the challenges and opportunities with establishing geothermal industrial parks in East Africa. The first three webinars included presenters from Iceland who discussed different aspects related to the creation of industrial parks in Iceland. The final webinar was a discussion with Oserian Two Lakes in Kenya about their progress in establishing a geothermal industrial park in Naivasha Kenya.

November 17th, 2020

In this webinar, Neil Hellings of Oserian will present a case study of Two Lakes Industrial Park, covering topics such as direct use geothermal, obstacles for establishing industrial parks, and solutions to create economically viable industrial parks.

Please join the U.S. Energy Association (USEA) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for the third installment of the Geothermal Industrial Park webinar series presented by the U.S.- East Africa Geothermal Partnership (EAGP).

The goal of a geothermal industrial park (GIP) is to achieve a circular or zero waste approach where all resources are used sustainably for the benefit of the local community. Increased innovation and resource recovery through the elimination of material leakage help maximize the economic value of natural resources such as geothermal.

Please join the U.S. Energy Association (USEA) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for the launch of the Geothermal Industrial Park webinar series presented by the U.S.- East Africa Geothermal Partnership (EAGP). 

In the second webinar in our series, Baldvin Björn Haraldsson – Founding Partner at BBA//Fjeldco and Antoine Lochet, Counsel at BBA//Fjeldco will discuss the Legal aspects and Challenges of geothermal industrial parks.

The presentation is about the legal issues and challenges encountered in geothermal activities, especially in projects involving direct and/or cascade use of geothermal resources. The first part of the presentation will deal with the main legal aspects of geothermal projects including ownership of the resource, access to land, licensing and contractual issues. The second part of the presentation will consist of a case study of the Reykjanes Resource Park project and the legal aspects of that project.
