Geothermal financing workbook by Liz Battocletti ( )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 report by United States ( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This issue, the 16th since 1980, illustrates the potential of the liquid-dominated geothermal resource. Achievement of this potential by publicly held companies, who are required to publish financial statements, has involved the use of high-quality resources and the best available technologies or, in some instances, their own innovative modifications of existing technologies as well as a high degree of technical and management expertise. This issue also documents some effects of the new climate of utility deregulation and competition among independent power producers on the geothermal industry. The continuing importance attached to geothermal heat pumps as a preferred space conditioning technology by a number of disparate interests is illustrated by a number of articles. Magma Power Co. reported record gains in both 1993 revenues and earnings over 1992; California Energy has acquired Magma, creating the largest geothermal energy producer in the world. Owing to stagnation in USA, it was decided to focus on international markets. After the introduction, the issue has sections on: Federal beat, industry scene, financing, technology development, direct use technology, state and local, international, technology transfer, and directory
Federal Geothermal Research Program update, fiscal year 1995 by Geothermal Research Program (U.S.) ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The DOE Geothermal Research Program Update reports contain a fair amount of technical detail and management information at the individual project level. DJE 2005
Geothermal progress monitor report by United States ( Book )
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Some of the more interesting articles in this GPM are: DOE supporting research on problems at The Geysers; Long-term flow test of Hot Dry Rock system (at Fenton Hill, NM) to begin in Fiscal Year 1992; Significant milestones reached in prediction of behavior of injected fluids; Geopressured power generation experiment yields good results. A number of industry-oriented events and successes are reported, and in that regard it is noteworthy that this report comes near the end of the most active decade of geothermal power development in the U.S. There is a table of all operating U.S. geothermal power projects. The bibliography of research reports at the end of this GPM is useful. (DJE 2005)

Geothermal progress monitor report by United States ( Book )

Geothermal progress monitor ( Book )

Geothermal progress monitor ( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member 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 Reservoir Well Stimulation Program technology transfer ( )
4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To assess the stimulation technology developed in the oil and gas industry as to its applicability to the problems of geothermal well stimulation, a literature search was performed through on-line computer systems. Also, field records of well stimulation programs that have worked successfully were obtained from oil and gas operators and service companies. The results of these surveys are presented. (MHR)
Summary of potassium ( )
4 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During FY-79 the K/Ar dating laboratory at the Department of Geology and Geophysics of the University of Utah became operational. During the past calendar year forty-seven dates have been produced from areas predominantly in Utah. Dating has also been done on areas in Nevada and Montana through the State-Coupled program and Case Studies Support program. Areas in wich activity was concentrated include: Cove Creek Domes/Twin Peaks Area, SW Utah. Here volcanic activity spanned the time from 2.74 to 2.35 M.Y., with a mean age of 2.50 +- 0.14 M.Y. Black Rock Desert, SW Utah. Two dates on a single flow indicate an age of 1.49 +- 0.08 M.Y. for a flow previously undated. Wildcat Creek Area, SW Utah. Dating of rhyolite flows from this area gives a mean age of volcanism of 9.25 +- 0.16 M.Y., considerably older than previously inferred by the work of Haugh (1978). Mineral Mountains Pluton, SW Utah. Twelve dates on phases of the pluton indicate a complex history of intrusion, and more work is indicated in order to derive a coherent picture of the magmatic events leading to the formation of this batholith. Blackfoot Reservoir, Idaho. Two dates on rhyolite domes, previously updated, give ages of 1.56 +- 0.06 M.Y. and 1.28 +- 0.15 M.Y
Geothermal technology evolution rationale for the National Energy Strategy ( Book )
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member 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)
Geothermal research at the Puna Facility ( )
4 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report consists of a summary of the experiments performed to date at the Puna Geothermal Research Facility on silica in the geothermal fluid from the HGP-A well. Also presented are some results of investigations in commercial applications of the precipitated silica. (ACR)
