Engaging plenary sessions showcased the latest in geothermal technology innovations, highlighted the importance of cross-sector collaborations, and provided updates from leading companies in the industry. Meanwhile, technical sessions offered deep dives into geoscience and engineering topics such as geology, exploration, geochemistry, geophysics, direct-use economics, well drilling, power generation, and reservoir and production engineering.

Participants also enjoyed post-workshop activities, including field camps, field trips, and specialized courses, all designed to enhance knowledge and foster collaboration in the geothermal sector. A standout moment was the field trip to the Patuha geothermal field where attendees toured the power plant, observed newly drilled wells, and explored operational wells, gaining firsthand insights into the practical workings of geothermal energy production.
