A Primer on Geothermal Energy Resources and Waste Heat Technologies

March 12, 2013 from 1 - 5 pm

in conjunction with the conference

Geothermal Energy and Waste Heat to Power:
Utilizing Oil and Gas Plays

March 13 - 14, 2013    
SMU Campus in Dallas, Texas


The graduate students of the Geothermal Lab are offering an introductory workshop to teach the basics needed for your geothermal endeavors. From the geology to waste heat technologies, the workshop will cover the foundation needed to follow the conference presentations. Having come from undergraduate degrees in geology, engineering, and finance, their diverse skill sets easily relate to the needs of those new to the industry. This team worked on the Geothermal Map of the United States and the Temperature-at-Depth Maps on; their research spans from Alaska to Peru.

The class will include topics such as:

  • Geologic introduction and terminology
  • Geothermal system characteristics
  • Types of geothermal energy
  • Waste heat technologies
  • Financial considerations
  • Differences between geothermal and oil & gas production

Continuing education credits will be offered (4 hours).  A notebook of related materials and lecture notes will be distributed to attendees.

Register for this class by March 5th, 2013 to attend; no on-site registration accepted. Seating is limited to 50 attendees.

You may register for just this workshop or as an additional item when registering for the conference.

Workshop registration $150/per person:
