Direct Use Market Sounding Webinar

On 5th May 2022, the African Union Commission’s (AUC) Regional Geothermal Coordination Unit (RGCU) hosted the GRMF Direct Use Market Sounding Webinar.

The goal of the webinar was to capture the current and future market situation for direct use projects in East Africa to set up a funding programme!

Which projects are out there?

Where are these projects located?

What type of direct use application is planned?

The webinar included presentations on best practice, as well as pitches for planned geothermal direct use projects in East Africa.

A recording of the webinar will  be available soon.
