Long term objective:
Contribute to the realisation of geothermal energy potential to achieve a five-fold growth in the global installed capacity for geothermal power generation and two-fold growth for geothermal heating by 2030
Short term objective:
Develop and operationalize the GGA as a global platform for enhanced dialogue and knowledge-sharing within the GGA constituency as well as for coordinated action to address the technical, regulatory, policy and financial challenges towards wider penetration of geothermal energy in the global energy mix.
Roadmap and work plan
The GGA Joint Communique released by the GGA in December 2015 sets forth key establishment and operational principles of the Alliance.
The GGA Action Plan, developed through an intensive consultative process within the GGA constituency, adopted by the GGA members in May 2016 identifies the key areas of GGA action and specifies detailed operational processes and procedures.
Since the launch of the initiative, efforts have focussed on the operationalization of the Alliance. To this end, through an intensive consultative process within the GGA constituency in the past few months, a concise plan of action for the Alliance (GGA Action Plan) has been finalized and endorsed by the GGA Members in May 2016.
In order to identify specific activities under this Action Plan, the Alliance launched in June 2016 the first Call for Proposals of activities for the consideration of its constituency to provide implementation support. 20 applications have been received from the GGA member governments and partner institutions that seek implementation support in the form of technical assistance, policy advise, capacity building, access to financing or international outreach for partnership. The applications are currently being reviewed by the GGA constituency.
