Description

Description The Global Geothermal Alliance (GGA) is designed to ramp up the share of geothermal energy in the global energy mix both in the areas of geothermal power generation and the direct use of geothermal heat. The GGA serves as a platform for dialogue and knowledge-sharing among governments, international financing institutions, private sector investors and other practitioners as well as a coalition for action to increase the share of installed geothermal electricity and heat generation worldwide.
Objectives Key objectives of the Alliance are to:

- identify and promote models for sharing and reducing risks associated with the geothermal business to be able to attract timely and efficient private investments and to integrate geothermal facilities into energy markets. - help create enabling regulatory and institutional conditions for timely and efficient private investments and efficient operation of geothermal resources and associated network infrastructure. - help streamline ongoing outreach and awareness-raising efforts in order to give geothermal energy greater visibility in the energy and climate debates at global, regional and national level. The alliance goal is a five-fold growth in the installed capacity for geothermal power generation and at least two-fold growth for geothermal heating by 2030, compared to 2014 levels.

Activities Areas of support would include the creation of enabling regulatory and institutional conditions for investment; the promotion of innovative financing and risk mitigation mechanisms for geothermal drilling; the design of effective incentive schemes for geothermal power supply; and capacity building and technical assistance for construction and operation of geothermal energy systems.

Goals 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.

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.

Comments on indicators and goals The CO2 reduction goal is taken from the report: "Individual actors, collective initiatives and their impact on global greenhouse gas emissions", New Climate, PBL, and Yale 2018.
How will goals be achieved
Have you changed or strenghtened your goals
Progress towards the goals 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. Several meetings held with the 31 partners. Knowledge products: 4 publications on geothermal energy produced. Workshops: 2 workshops held each year.
