USA, Texas: How Geothermal and Other Renewable Energies Can Help States Comply with Clean Power Plan

3rd EPA Clean Power Plan Implementation Summit

March 15-17, 2016, Sheraton North Houston at George Bush Intercontinental, Houston, TX, USA

Key decision makers gather to discuss compliance plans
  • Hear strategies states are using to comply with the Clean Power Plan
  • Learn the role solar, wind, geothermal, hydro, nuclear, natural gas, and storage play in meeting 111(d) requirements
Discover the impacts on reliability and resource adequacy due to the Clean Power Plan. The geothermal industry have an important opportunity to provide a solution.

The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC), Geothermal Energy Association (GEA), and Geothermal Exchange Organization (GEO) have released guidance for U.S. states on meeting new clean energy standards from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The free state-by-state guides walk through the benefits and uses of three major types of geothermal applications:
  • Power generation,
  • Direct use
  • Heat pumps
They initially cover Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Oregon. Other guides are planned for release in the near future.
