Clean energy from the earth – Developing East Africa’s geothermal resources

By 15/08/2019 No Comments

After long break, FCG ANZDEC has returned to African continent! We have been contracted by the New Zealand Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Trade to provide support services for the New Zealand – Africa Geothermal Facility, strengthening the current management arrangement. The goal of this project is to expand access to affordable, reliable and clean energy from geothermal energy resources by providing technical assistance, capacity building, and studies in the sector.

Recently, our team of experts visited the four East African countries, meeting with stakeholders and conducting site visits. The objectives of NEw Zealand Africa Geothermal Facility were presented, and the needs and opportunities for developing geothermal energy in each country discussed. During these visits, the team gave brief details on the New Zealand industry and capacity to provide strong support to geothermal programs in East Africa.

We are excited for this opportunity and look forward to delivering quality outputs in order to develop the geothermal energy sector in East Africa.
