USA, Oregon: Presentation on the Newberry FORGE Project

What I Presented at the Oregon Geothermal Working Group (Newberry Geothermal Energy)

Kyla Grasso, Geologist with AltaRock Energy and serving on the Technical and Communications and Outreach teams for the NEWGEN FORGE project.

The NEWGEN team is busy, busy, busy preparing the proposal for the latest round of FORGE. But that doesn’t mean that’s all we’re doing!

Last month I attended the Oregon Geothermal Working Group held in Lakeview, Oregon on April 8th. Project managers gave updates on various geothermal projects taking place in Oregon, including my presentation on the NEWGEN FORGE site. Meeting attendees were excited to hear an update on the project work, and continue to be supportive of the NEWGEN FORGE efforts.

The Oregon Geothermal Working Group includes representatives of utilities, government agencies, environmental groups, farming and rural interests, and geothermal industry developers. The Group was formed in 2004 to promote the use of Oregon’s geothermal resources for power generation and direct use, and meetings are open to the public.
