The conference will bring together the best of the best in the geothermal industry offering inspirational keynotes and educational tracks that will appeal to seasoned professionals, as well as someone new to the industry.

Three different education tracks are offered including Design, Policy and Programs, and Building Electrification. These tracks will highlight sessions including GEO 101, Catching up on IRA Implementation, Geothermal Drilling Regulations, Utility Thermal Energy Networks (UTEN), Workforce Development, and much more.

Attendees will include geothermal designers and contractors, utilities, drillers, state agencies, organized labor, universities, and manufacturers from around the world. In 2023, the conference welcomed over 650 attendees from 23 states and four countries. Over 45 exhibitors will be showcasing a wide range of products and services needed to advance geothermal, ground source heat pumps (GSHP).

NY-GEO is a not-for-profit trade association, founded in 2014 and representing the geothermal heat pump (GHP) industry in New York State dedicated to promoting geothermal heating and cooling. NY-GEO’s mission is to grow the geothermal heat pump industry and develop its workforce while educating policymakers and residents about the benefits of geothermal heat pumps. It is the driving force in the mass adoption of ground-source (geothermal) heat pumps for residential, commercial, and utility-scale heating and cooling in New York State while working and supporting neighboring states and communities.

NY-GEO will host its first conference in downstate NY on October 21 through 23, 2024 at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriot. The event will emphasize content on how to address densely populated areas and large commercial buildings.
