Slovak-Icelandic Business Forum

The Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) co-organized the Slovak-Icelandic Business Forum with the Office of the President of the Slovak Republic and the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic. The respective event was devoted to the potential for the development of cooperation in the field of obtaining and subsequent use of geothermal energy. Iceland is a country whose national energy mix comes almost exclusively from renewable sources.

Before the business forum itself, a site-visit of the geothermal energy project in Galanta (Galantaterm s.r.o.) was arranged for the Slovak and Icelandic representatives. The geothermal energy project in Galanta is the first ever in Slovakia and was created for the purpose of heating households and heating domestic water. At the same time, the project is an example of mutual cooperation between Slovak and Icelandic partners in terms of geothermal energy.
