About us

The Global Geothermal Alliance (GGA) serves as a platform for dialogue, co‑operation and co‑ordinated action between the geothermal industry, policy makers and stakeholders worldwide.

Launched at COP21*, the GGA is a coalition for action to increase the use of geothermal energy, both in power generation and direct use of heat. It calls on governments, business and other stakeholders to support geothermal deployment and realise its potential.

The GGA has aspirational goals to achieve fivefold growth in the installed capacity of geothermal power generation and more than twofold growth in geothermal heating by 2030. Read more in the GGA Joint Communiqué.

What is the GGA designed to do?

  • Foster an enabling environment to attract investment in geothermal energy.
  • Provide customised support to regions and countries with geothermal market potential.
  • Facilitate the exchange of insights and experience among key stakeholders in the geothermal energy value chain.
  • Identify and promote models for sharing and mitigating risks, in order to attract private investment and integrate geothermal facilities into energy markets.
  • Help to streamline outreach to give geothermal energy greater visibility in the global energy and climate debates.
