Objective: Assist the development of the Australian geothermal industry through coordinated geothermal training courses (in conjunction with IGA) and annual conference (in conjunction with AGEA). Improve communication strategy for AGEA & AGEG through provision of dedicated website that provides linkages to geothermal resource material (e.g. DOE’s Legacy Collection, EnGINE, Geothermal Education Office etc). Facilitate informed public through accessible information including website and FAQ sheets. Provide educational kits for media, K-12 and university education.
Key issues to be addressed by TIG - 4 include but are not limited to:
|Website design and upgrades||Plan annual AGEA-AGEG conference|
|Develop FAQ Sheets||Coordinate geothermal training workshops|
|Consolidate links to all relevant geothermal websites||Develop educational kits|
|Consolidate Calendar of Events|

The conference was the first conference organised by the Australian geothermal energy community exclusively on the topic of geothermal energy. The conference was made possible by seed funding from the Australian Government under the Sir Mark Oliphant International Frontiers of Science and Technology Conference funding scheme with additional sponsorship from generous company sponsors.
