Touring the Steamboat Geothermal Plant

This week, we’ve got some extras from the Geothermal Conference and Expo held earlier this month. Before leaving Nevada, Stephen Lacey met up with some folks from Ormat Technologies, who gave him a tour of the company’s 100-MW capacity Steamboat facility in Reno.

We’ll speak with Paul Thomsen, Public Policy Manager for Ormat about some broader market trends. Then we’ll walk around the grounds with John Bernardi, Environmental Compliance Specialist at the Steamboat facility, who will give us a sense for how the plant operates.

Finally, we’ll have some more interviews from the conference floor. Kenneth McLeod, President and CEO of Western GeoPower talks about the impact of the credit crunch; and Barry Andrews, Head of Geothermal and Power at Chevron tells us about the company’s operations in Indonesia.
