Policy Committee

The GRC Policy Committee is an add-on option for GRC members who want to fund advocacy work at the state and local level.

A continuation of the many works of the Geothermal Energy Association, the Policy Committee is comprised of companies making up a broad spectrum of the geothermal power industry.

The GRC Policy Committee advocates for public policies that will promote the development and utilization of geothermal resources and provides a forum for the industry to discuss issues and problems. It encourages research and development to improve geothermal technologies, presents industry views to governmental organizations, provides assistance for the export of geothermal goods and services, compiles statistical data about the geothermal industry, and conducts education and outreach projects.

The following are the costs to add GRC Policy Committee to your GRC dues:
