The Beginning of a Geothermal Renaissance

This week, we're podcasting from the Geothermal Conference and Expo in Reno, Nevada. Most professionals at the conference would say that the geothermal industry is experiencing a renaissance. Indeed, as development of conventional resources has increased over the last few years and new technologies have grabbed the attention of financiers and the mainstream press, the industry is finally starting to get the recognition it deserves.

We'll talk with Alexander Richter, Director of Global Research at Glitnir Bank, about some development trends in the U.S. and Iceland.

Dan Reicher, Director of Climate Change and Energy Initiatives at Google.org, tells us about the web-giant's interest in stimulating the market for large-scale Engineered Geothermal Systems (EGS).

Jared Potter, Co-founder and CEO of Potter Drilling and Mark Hankowski, VP of Business Development at Potter, describe how the company's advanced drilling technology will eventually allow for cost-effective EGS development.

And lastly, Mike Hayter, Director of Geothermal Development at Raser Technologies, talks about the company's plan to construct smaller-scale, modular geothermal plants that utilize lower temperature resources.

Inside Renewable Energy offers the latest in renewable energy news and information.
