Canada: Day-Long Course will Give Overview of Geothermal Energy Potential

Geothermal Energy Workshop (CSPG)

Friday, September 30, 2016, 8:00 am - 4:00pm, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

This forum will provide the most up to date overview of geothermal energy potential in Canada and will include presentations from leading geothermal energy researchers from universities across the country. Attendees will be able to learn what current research is being conducted on key geoscience issues, and where the major resource potential lies. 

Canada has enormous geothermal energy resources, and Canadians have the skills and knowledge to realize its full potential. While Canada is a world leader in the areas of science and technology required for a successful geothermal energy industry, compared to the rest of the world, we lag far behind in geothermal energy development. 

Geoscientists can reduce barriers that have so far limited geothermal development in the country. The challenge is adapting existing expertise to develop new economic opportunities for a renewable resources industry.
