Canada: Geothermal Pioneer Receives Top National Scientific Honor

INRS professor Jasmin Raymond recognized by the Canadian Geotechnical Society (EurekAlert -press release)

Professor Jasmin Raymond
Professor Jasmin Raymond of the INRS Eau Terre Environnement Research Centre received the 2016 Colloquium Lecture honour from the Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS) at its annual conference GeoQuébec 2015. He earned this distinction for the quality of his proposed talk on different in situ approaches used to precisely measure the thermal properties of geological materials for geotechnical applications.

Even though his career is just beginning, Professor Raymond is already well known as a scientific leader in the field of geothermal energy, a new source of renewable energy from the Earth's core, as his work on deep and shallow geothermal resources has shown. He is helping to advance knowledge of analysis and energy modelling and their geothermal applications, from building heating and cooling to electrical power production. Professor Raymond also acts as a technical expert for a Canadian Standards Association committee for the installation of Earth energy systems and for Geoscience BC's geothermal technical advisory committee. He also sits on the board of directors of the Canadian Geothermal Research Council.
