Interview with Shigeto Yamada

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Shigeto Yamada and I work as a General Manager of Geothermal Projects at Fuji Electric Co., Ltd.

What makes Geothermal so great?

Geothermal energy is the renewable, natural and domestic energy, and it must be one of the important energy sources of the countries. In addition, the geothermal energy is sustainable, as far as using it based on properly planned production.

What makes IGA so great?

The International Geothermal Association is a benchmark for the world geothermal community, a unique meeting point for scientists and professionals involved in the research and development of geothermal energy. I think that IGA can be a powerful tool to find synergies between the scientific and the professional community gravitating on geothermal energy and also to spread the “geothermal culture” among the public community.
