Narrative and Data Templates for 2014 Student Geothermal Case Study Challenge.
Narrative and Data Templates for 2014 Student Geothermal Case Study Challenge. Templates are to be used by students to construct a series of detailed case studies of select geothermal areas. Templates are valid for the 2014 Geothermal Case Study Challenge only, and may be subject to revisions in subsequent years, unless otherwise stated.
Much of the discussion surrounding green buildings centers around reducing energy use. The term net zero is the platinum standard for green buildings, meaning the building in question does not take any more energy from the utility grid than it produces using renewable energy resources, such as solar, wind, or geothermal installations (and sometimes these renewable energy resources actually feed energy back to the utility grid).
We post solicitations for renewable energy generation, renewable energy certificates, and green power as a courtesy to our web site visitors. Unless otherwise noted, these requests for proposals (RFPs) and solicitations are neither supported nor endorsed by the U.S. Department of Energy and/or the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
Navigating the complex system of federal and state regulations to secure project approvals is one of the biggest hurdles geothermal power developers face—but not if they’ve got a map outlining every twist and turn.
On June 26th, we held the 3rd Quarter GRR Stakeholder Update at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, NV. The meeting was well-attended with over 40 attendees, including in-person and webinar attendance. Thanks to all who attended!
Last week, we held the GRR Stakeholder Update at the Denver Renaissance Hotel in Denver, CO. The meeting was well-attended with over 50 attendees, including in-person and webinar attendance. Thanks to all who attended!
During the meeting, we reviewed the current status of the GRR efforts, including:
* Roadmap Development: expansion to Colorado and Texas
* Regulatory Analyses: including NEPA, Funding Mechanisms, and Permit Coordination Offices
This week, Denver hosted the US DOE Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) 2013 Peer Review. The purpose of the peer review is to offer geothermal stakeholders an opportunity to learn about the projects funded by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) across a wide spectrum of technical complexity and funding magnitude, from research and development to demonstration and analysis.
