EBC Renewable Energy Program: Geothermal Energy Development in New England

April 11, 2012 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

According to EPA, geothermal heat pumps are the most energy efficient, environmentally clean, and cost effective systems for temperature control.  Unlike solar and wind energy, geothermal energy is always available, 365 days a year.  The technology is proven and has been used since ancient times.  If geothermal energy has so many advantages, why is its use not more widespread?  This half-day EBC Program on Geothermal Energy has gathered experts from the geothermal industry to provide insights into geothermal development in New England.  The program will start with a description of various geothermal technologies.  From there, the program will transition to a panel consisting of geothermal project team participants who will explain their individual roles on a typical geothermal project.  The program will conclude with a panel who will present their experiences with operational geothermal systems and lessons learned.
