Iceland: GEOthermal Research Group to Showcase its Research at Conference

Conference: The Deep Roots of Geothermal Systems (GEORG)

18-19 February 2016, Reykjavik Energy Headquarters, Reykjavík, Iceland

The cooperative project, titled "Deep Roots of Geothermal Systems" (DRG), is managed within the cluster cooperation of GEOthermal Research Group (GEORG) and is financially supported by GEORG, Orkustofnun,Reykjavik EnergyHS Orka,Landsvirkjun and the Iceland Deep Drilling Project (IDDP).

The aim of the project is to understand the relationship of water and magma in the roots of volcanoes and how heat is transferred into geothermal systems to maintain their energy. Furthermore, the design of wells and well heads for high temperatures will be a focus of the project, as will methods for utilizing super-heated steam from greater depths.
