Assessing the accessible energy in known resource areas
Geothermometers were used to estimate reservoir temperatures, thicknesses were assumed constant and down to a depth of 3km, a geothermal energy recovery factor was used, extractable thermal energy converted to available work and then available work converted to electricity, but available thermal energy was the primary reported result.
