Established in 2007, the Australian Geothermal Energy Association (AGEA) is the national industry association for the geothermal energy industry.

The Association was established to build positive relationships with Federal and State governments, and to ensure that geothermal energy is promoted as an important and viable solution to Australia's future energy security and to the reduction for greenhouse gas emissions.

To this end, AGEA defines its mission statement as to foster and accelerate the development and commercialisation of geothermal energy resources in Australia by:

  • clearly and accurately articulating the advantages of geothermal energy and the progress of the industry
  • cooperating across the industry to develop, collect, improve and disseminate information about geothermal energy; and
  • developing good and constructive relationships with government, the investment community and the broader Australian community.

AEGA works with government, the academic community, relevant scientific organisations and the media to push this agenda and provide information about the progress of the industry.

In addition, AGEA states that it seeks to assist government develop prudent policy mechanisms that enable all forms of emissions free energy to increasingly penetrate the national energy market in line with climate change and energy security policy goals that are in the national interest.

A low cost, emissions free energy solution, AEGA notes that geothermal energy has the potential to provide both:

  • a reliable and secure supply of energy into the national market over the next decade; and
  • a reliable, low cost source of heat to drive energy efficiency and industrial applications.

AGEA's membership comprises major geothermal energy project developers, direct heat equipment suppliers and service providers to the industry.
