The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) welcomes its new President, Dr. Andrew Sabin of the Navy Geothermal Program Office in California.

The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) has welcomed Dr. Andrew Sabin as the 27th President of the global geothermal energy organization, succeeding Maria Richards of SMU.

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.”

The Davis/ California-based Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) will be celebrating 50 years of service to the global geothermal energy community in 2022. The GRC is dedicated to advancing geothermal.

ThinkGeoEnergy congratulates Andy Sabin to his new role. You are a valued colleague on the board of the IGA and we are looking forward working with you.
