This report was prepared to help small firm search for financing for geothermal energy projects. There are various financial and economics formulas. Costs of some small overseas geothermal power projects are shown. There is much discussion of possible sources of financing, especially for overseas projects. (DJE-2005).

Geothermal Progress Monitor (GPM) Issue No. 13 documents that most related factors favor the growth and geographic expansion of the US geothermal industry and that the industry is being technologically prepared to meet those challenges into the next century. It is the function of GPM to identify trends in the use of this resource and to provide a historical record of its development pathway. The information assembled for this issue of GPM indicates that trends in the use of geothermal energy in this country and abroad continue to be very positive. Favorable sentiments as well as pertinent actions on the part of both government and industry are documented in almost every section. The FEDERAL BEAT points up that the National Energy Strategy (NES) developed at the highest levels of the US government recognizes the environmental and energy security advantages of renewable energy, including geothermal, and makes a commitment to substantial diversification'' of US sources of energy. With the announcement of the construction of several new plants and plant expansions, the INDUSTRY SCENE illustrates industry's continued expectation tha the use of geothermal energy will prove profitable to investors. In DEVELOPMENT STATUS, spokesmen for both an investor-owned utility and a major geothermal developer express strong support for geothermal power, particularly emphasizing its environmental advantages. DEVELOPMENT STATUS also reports that early successes have been achieved by joint DOE/industry R D at The Geysers which will have important impacts on the future management of this mature field. Also there is increasing interest in hot dry rock. Analyses conducted in support of the NES indicate that if all the postulated technology developments occur in this field, the price of energy derived from hot dry rock in the US could drop.

Geothermal progress monitor. Report no. 14 ( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
This issue of the Geothermal Progress Monitor, the 14th since its inception in 1980, highlights the anticipated rapid growth in the use of geothermal heat pumps and documents the continued growth in the use of geothermal energy for power generation, both in this country and abroad. In countries with a relatively large demand for new generation capacity, geothermal, if available, is being called on as a preferable alternative to the use of domestic or imported oil. On the other hand, in this country where current demand for new capacity is less, geothermal energy is commonly being put to use in small power generation units operating on the hot water resource.

Geothermal technology evolution rationale for the National Energy Strategy ( Book )
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
The DOE developed ''Technology Evolution Rationale'' documents for many of its technology development programs, at this time (report is dated October 1, 1990). This is a very significant description of the status of resources, technology, and industry in 1990, and the thinking that guided the DOE Geothermal Research Program at this time. The report describes: Geothermal energy conversion and use technologies, Resources and land use, Stakeholder and users, Industry status, and Market acceptance and experience in the U.S. The Economic status chapter covers Figures of Merit for assessing geothermal energy systems, and trends in geothermal development. The chapter on Cost/performance projections provides much detail on estimates of system costs, and projections for how DOE R&D would likely affect those costs. The Rationale chapter provides much detail on how subsystems are linked together to provide system performance and cost estimates, and details of technology improvements being worked on that are likely to reduce the cost of power from geothermal. Includes references (citations) to the background studies used to develop the details here. (DJE 2005).

Summary of potassium ( Book )
4 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A significant improvement in efficiency of the K-Ar laboratory was brought about by completion of a second extraction line. Two extractions can now be done routinely each day and the ³⁸Ar spike ratios of the new table will permit dating of much younger samples than previously. Extensive K-Ar dating of samples from the Mineral Mountains shows intervals of silicic volcanism at 0.5, 0.8 and 7.5 m.y. K-Ar dating of plutonic units does not present a consistent picture, however. Plutonic events 35 to 40 m.y., 29 m.y. and 19 to 21 m.y. ago are suggested but interpretation must be considered preliminary. Joint programs with the US Geological Survey now underway to study the Rb-Sr and U-Pb systematics of the Mineral Mountains pluton should aid in unravelling its history. Dating of basalts from the Cove Creek Domes/Twin Peaks area, Utah, has aided in delineating the timing of basaltic volcanism. This adds to the already extensive data on the chronology of volcanic activity in the area. Dating of samples from the Beowawe Known Geothermal Resources Area, Nevada have confirmed earlier dates indicating major volcanism took place 38 m.y. ago and 17 to 16 m.y. ago.
