Technical Assistance for Strengthening the Institutional Capacity of Iller Bank on the Direct Utilization of Geothermal Energy

The project “Technical Assistance for Strengthening the Institutional Capacity of Iller Bank on the Direct Utilization of Geothermal Energy” was tendered under the FWC BENEFICIARIES 2009 – LOT 4 of the European Union and the Greek energy & environment consultant EXERGIA S.A., acting as member of the COWI Consortium, was selected. The project had as specific objective to improve Iller Bank’s capacity to support municipalities in their investments for effective and sustainable use of geothermal resources. Moreover, and since the capacity building request was addressed to a mature organisation with staff of a specific expertise, departments and business activities, the consultant considered that the training courses and the study visit activities had to fully adapt to the specific needs of Iller Bank and maintain a linkage to previous EU project results and future, ongoing lending programs of Iller Bank.

The project comprised training courses and study visits to geothermal sites in Turkey and Germany for the personnel of Iller Bank. The training material which was prepared for the training courses of this project is presented in this webpage.
