Geothermal Workshops at the GRC Annual Meeting & GEA GeoExpo+

Four Workshops at Geothermal Resources Council Annual Meeting

Four workshops at the GRC Annual Meeting & GEA GeoExpo+ in Sacramento, California. 

The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) has announced more details of events at the biggest geothermal conference of the year at the Sacramento Convention Center, Sacramento, California, USA.

In addition to the main event of the GRC Annual Meeting & GEA GeoExpo+ taking place October 23-26, 2016, there will be two workshops before the conference and two during the geothermal energy event of the year.

Two geothermal workshops will be held over two days on Friday and Saturday, October 21 and 22, before the start of the main event.

The Conceptual Models of Geothermal Systems workshop will focus on building geothermal resource conceptual models as the basis for well targeting and resource capacity assessments at all stages of exploration and development.

The Reservoir Stimulation: Recent Field Practices, Monitoring Techniques and Theoretical/Laboratory Investigations workshop will provide a platform for in-depth review and discussion of recent Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) field experiences and will provide attendees with an understanding of recent advances in monitoring technologies and theoretical, laboratory and numerical modeling pertaining to reservoir stimulation.

On Sunday, October 23 a Best Practices in Operation and Maintenance workshop will allow attendees to share lessons learned in geothermal O&M that can help improve the bottom line of every operating plant, and potentially make new plants more competitive with natural gas, wind and solar alternatives.

On Wednesday, October 26 a 2 hour Geothermal 101 workshop will give California legislators,  energy regulators and their staff, educators, students and the general public an overview of the many benefits of geothermal energy.

The GRC Workshop presentations will be given by experts from private industry, national laboratories and universities, and should prove valuable for anyone interested in learning about the latest exciting developments in geothermal energy.
