The Geo-Heat Center conducted an assessment of the use of a geothermal well coupled to a radiant floor system for greenhouse heating at the planned expansion of Ward's Greenhouse, Inc. near Oreana, ID. Eventual plans call for construction of a 16-acre state-of-the-art greenhouse facility that will specialize mainly in the raising of poinsettias and other potted flowers. The proposed greenhouse design calls for a concrete floor with a flood-floor irrigation system and a radiant floor heating system. The main objective of this project was to investigate the possibility of "loading" the... More →

Selected subsurface geothermal reservoirs located in the Western United States may contain significant geothermal energy, and if development continues, this energy source may provide substantial electrical power or related energy by the year 2000. Utility management must be convinced of the reliability and cost attractiveness of this energy source. A number of exploration programs are in progress to evaluate the potential of geothermal energy in the United States. For example, numerous exploration methods have been employed in Dixie Valley, Nevada, since 1967 with mixed results. However, with ... More →

DOE announced up to $4 million in funding for six geothermal Deep Direct-Use (DDU) research projects to conduct feasibility studies of large scale, low-temperature deep-well geothermal systems and cascaded surface technologies. These projects will extend the reach of geothermal energy into previously untapped regions of the country ... the Appalachian Basin, the Illinois Basin, the Wassuk Range, the Columbia River Basalt Group, the Walker Lake Valley, and the Gulf Coast region of Texas.

DDU is an emerging technology that has been underutilized in the U.S., and if feasible, could del... More →

The U.S. Department of Energy Geothermal Technologies Program (GTP) seeks input to support The U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. DOE initiative to update geothermal resource classification. In support of DOE Geothermal Technologies Program (GTP) goal of increasing the installed geothermal capacity in the United States, the U.S. Geological Survey is collaborating with the GTP on expanding geothermal resource assessments, developing new geothermal resource classification standards and assisting in the establishment of the National Geothermal Data System.

The results of this work will e... More →

A Review of the Impact of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) on the United States in the 21st Century. A comprehensive assessment of enhanced, or engineered, geothermal systems was carried out by an 18-member panel assembled by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to evaluate the potential of geothermal energy becoming a major energy source for the United States.

Geothermal resources span a wide range of heat sources from the Earth, including not only the more easily developed, currently economic hydrothermal resources; but also the Earth's deeper, stored thermal energy, w... More →

The main purpose of the IDDP project is to find out if it is economically feasible to extract energy and geochemicals out of hydrothermal systems at supercritical conditions. To study the supercritical hydrous fluid, an advanced drilling technology needs to be applied and a novel fluid handling and evaluation system designed. The improvement of this basic idea by the IDDP is to drill deep enough into the roots of a conventional high temperature hydrothermal system to produce water at supercritical conditions and bring it to the surface as 400-600 degrees C superheated steam, at subcritical p...

In 2009 the transition of the World Stress Map Project to the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences (www.gfz-potsdam.de) has been accomplished. Neither politics nor strategy of the project has changed. It remains an independent research project with an open database access free of charge.
