Fundamentals of Geothermal projects Development

Course Overview:

Fundamental of the geothermal development program provides a unique and comprehensive program in understanding the geothermal value chain. It has been designed to provide knowledge to professionals working or intending to understand the economics of geothermal power projects, the field development processes and pipeline reticulation to power production. Geothermal resource is available in almost all countries in the Eastern Africa region. Tapping into this resource provides a baseload useful in filling the energy access gap and accelerating the electrification rate in the region.
