Curiously, the .pdf file from Utah seems quaintly outdated.
Why that is strange is that a company in Utah is making the greatest splash, so to speak, with relatively low temperature geothermal brines. Shipping electricity from such a source to Disneyland does have potential for a company notable for promotion.
But the “reverse air conditioning” technology belongs to United Technologies. UT installed its first units at Chena Hot Springs Spa, northeast of Fairbanks in Alaska.
What a story that is. The only geothermal power generated in Alaska, with all its geothermal potential, is from very low temperature water.
But there is a topper.
The remote village of Husavik, Iceland, uses advanced technology and a garbage-burning facility to add heat to the low-temperature geothermal waters.
But the most important thing to know about geothermal is that it is the ultimate baseload power (available 24/7).
Always appreciate anybody writing about geothermal. Too many people suffering sun blindness. 🙂
Sorry about this somehow getting my drivel posted in the wrong place but updating the grid may be the most important step of all for geothermal and other green energy.
