U.S. Department of Energy Geothermal Electricity Technology Evaluation Model (GETEM) Webinar
June 30, 2011
The Geothermal Electricity Technology Evaluation Model (GETEM) is an economics/performance spreadsheet model developed by the Geothermal Technologies Program to assess power generation costs and the potential for technology improvements to impact those generation costs.
This webinar is an overview of the model and its use with an emphasis on how the model calculates the generation costs associated with Exploration and Confirmation activities, Well Field Development, and Reservoir Definition.
This session provided insight as to how an applicant to the "Geothermal Technology Advancement for Rapid Development of Resources in the U.S." funding opportunity announcement (DE-FOA-0000522) can use the model to show the impact of technology improvements.
