Session 5G: Case Studies: Technology Improvements for Geothermal Utilization

An area of increasing focus across the geothermal industry, including improvements in plant operational performance, electronic submersible and line shaft pumping, co-production of oil and gas methods, hybrids for improved economics (solar, minerals), etc.  Technology improvements lead to bringing down cost and overall feasibility hurdles, leading to project opportunities that didn't have merit before.  This technical session would bring paper submissions together to discuss current innovation areas that benefit geothermal utilization.
