Pivot2020 is a week-long virtual event of ten moderated roundtables, featuring thought leaders and change makers who are building the future of geothermal energy. Panelists include leaders from the oil and gas industry, geothermal industry, academia, governments, national labs, and start-up companies.

Pivot2020 is being hosted by the Geothermal Entrepreneurship Organization (GEO) at the University of Texas at Austin, and the International Geothermal Association (IGA), along with industry and organizational partners and friends. Special thanks to Pivot2020’s marketing partners, including the Geothermal Resources Council, ThinkGeoEnergy, and the Members in Transition collaboration between the Society of Petroleum Engineers, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, and the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists.

PIVOT 2020 – from Hydrocarbons to Heat online event July 13-17, 2020 promises to be an exciting and new event bringing together oil & gas and geothermal players from around the world for panel discussions targeted to open your mind.
