GEA compiled the “US Geothermal Edu- cation and Training Guide” that details 22 undergraduate and graduate programs at U.S. colleges and universities. Addition- ally, 31 schools have research opportuni- ties in geothermal studies available to stu- dents. “To keep creating jobs in the geother-


mal industry, we must keep getting tal- ented individuals coming into the indus- try. The programs at these leading schools will develop the next generation of geo- thermal professionals,” Gawell said. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson welcomed the expected 2,500 attendees and 160 exhibitors to the world’s largest Expo dedicated to geothermal power. “Sacramento is pleased to welcome the geothermal industry back to where geo- thermal power started in the United States,” said Mayor Johnson. “Northern California has been a thriving hotspot for this activity for decades and we are thrilled to bring the geothermal community to- gether from all around the world to our


city for the 2010 Geothermal Energy Expo.” The 2010 Geothermal Energy Expo,


held at the Sacramento Convention Cen- ter Oct. 24-27, is the world’s largest gath- ering of geothermal professionals and showcases projects, equipment, services, and state of the art technology. A Virtual Job Fair connects qualified applicants with the industry’s leading companies. Complimentary admission is available to college students. The Expo floor will be open to the public on Wed., Oct. 27, from 12:00pm to 2:00pm. More than 2,500 at- tendees and over 160 exhibitors are ex- pected to attend. With new geothermal power projects in progress in fifteen states from the Pacific to the Gulf Coast, the expo has been rapidly expanding with the number of exhibitors at the Geothermal Energy Expo more than doubling since 2008. “We have exhibitors from 31 states and


10 countries represented at this year’s expo. With open admission to the public


on Wednesday, Oct. 27 and complimenta- ry admission to students for the entire expo, we are going to see the largest and most exciting Expo ever,” said Kathy Kent, GEA Marketing and Events Man- ager
