Panel Session 1A: Closed-Loop Geothermal at Scale: Demonstrations and Deployments

Description: Closed-loop geothermal technologies, also called Advanced Geothermal Systems (AGS) have the ability to dramatically scale and expand the scope of geothermal for heat and power. Today’s demonstrations and deployments are employing variations of closed-loop technology and using different approaches to meet long-term installed capacity goals. Learn about projects that are happening in North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and Africa and how they are deploying closed-loop geothermal at scale. Hear how government funding, including military funding of closed-loop geothermal projects are initiating developments around the world.
