Development of Enhanced Geothermal Systems Technologies Workshops
The following documents are from a series of four workshops held in 2007 that were intended to motivate facilitated discussion on technology gaps related to reservoir management and operations.
The first presentation evaluated the assumptions set forth in the report by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) titled The Future of Geothermal Energy (MIT 2006). Three of the presentations (in the areas of Reservoir Creation, Reservoir Management and Operations, and Wellfield Construction) focused on identifying technology gaps associated with EGS development.
