Geothermal Resources Council Welcomes New President
Dr. Andrew Sabin is the new President of the GRC
Davis, California, USA. The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) has welcomed Dr. Andrew Sabin as the 27th President of the global geothermal energy organization, succeeding Maria Richards. Dr. Andrew Sabin works with the Navy Geothermal Program Office in Ridgecrest, California. Andy’s career has spanned more than 30 years and has included ore deposits, geotechnical, environmental and geothermal work. He earned degrees in geology from the University of Maryland, the University of Pittsburgh and the Colorado School of Mines. Like many of his colleagues in the geothermal energy community, Andy has been a long-time member and supporter of the GRC. He also currently serves on the Board of Directors for the International Geothermal Association (IGA). According to Dr. Sabin, “If someone is fortunate enough to be employed in this industry for any amount of time, participating in and then giving back to the GRC should be an expectation. I’d encourage all leaders in this industry to motivate their peers and their employees to join and then actively participate in the GRC. The costs and the time spent each year are nominal. The potential benefits to their careers and to our industry are immeasurable.”
