in conjunction with the conference
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 Google.org/egs; 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: http://smu.edu/geothermal/Oil&Gas/registration/default2013.asp
