USA: Webinar on Tool Used to Measure Potential and Guide Development in Geothermal Sector

GeoRePORT: Geothermal Research Portfolio Optimization and Reporting Technique (Clean Energy Solutions Center)

Tue, Jul 31, 2018 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM PDT

The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with National Renewable Energy Laboratory, is hosting a no-cost webinar on the Geothermal Resource Portfolio Optimization and Reporting Technique (GeoRePORT) System.

The GeoRePORT System is a resource and project assessment tool used to measure potential and guide development in the geothermal sector. Developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), but applicable worldwide, the methodology assesses three categories of geothermal project development: geological, technical, and socioeconomic.

The GeoRePORT System provides a process for objectively appraising project progress and resource grade in individual geothermal areas. The system also allows for broader analysis at the portfolio and countrywide assessments, and it was used in the recent DOE Geothermal Vision Study (GeoVision) to identify potential barriers to geothermal development in the United States.

This webinar will give an overview of the GeoRePORT system, describing how the system can be used both to evaluate resource grade and project progress and to look at case histories of individual assessments and countrywide assessments.

The webinar presentation will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.

The speaker will be Katherine Young, the Geothermal Program Manager at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in the United States
