“Innovating Geothermal Wells”

Geothermal has historically been a niche industry with power installations typically limited to the ring of fire.  But with an increased global interest in climate change mitigation, and growth of the renewable industry, interest in geothermal, too, has grown – as a resource for both heat and power. Ms. Young will discuss geothermal’s potential in the energy transition and what enabling technologies are on the horizon, particularly in reducing the cost of wells.
