Most of the University of Utah’s electricity will now be fueled by renewable energy

By Courtney Tanner

It’s going to be much more sustainable to light up Rice-Eccles Stadium, the hospital at the University of Utah and all of the classrooms on campus in between.


Geothermal energy: Drilling a 3,000-meter deep well

Destabilizing the precarious equilibrium at depth with geothermal wells may reactivate the geological layers causing earthquakes. Researchers have studied the seismic activity linked to a geothermal drilling in search of supercritical fluids. They discovered that the drilling did not cause uncontrolled seismic activity.


2020 to become a milestone year for the global geothermal energy sector

By Alexander Richter

Going into a new decade, geothermal energy is well positioned in the efforts on a global energy transition providing heating, cooling and electricity around the clock, so the International Geothermal Association.


More Energy Expected To Come From Geothermal In California

By Brooke Ruth, Mark Sauer Photo By Kris Arciaga

Two new geothermal plants are in the works in the state, one is in the Salton Sea area and the other is in northern California. The growth in geothermal is believed to be spurred by a California bill passed in 2018 requiring the state to get to 100% renewable energy by 2045. Clean power from geothermal sources has long been generated in California, but the scale has been small, accounting for just 4.5% of the state’s energy in 2018.


California needs clean energy after sundown. Is the answer under our feet?

By Sammy Roth Photo by Mark Boster

After years of playing third fiddle to solar and wind power, geothermal energy is poised to start growing again in California. Three local energy providers have signed contracts this month for electricity from new geothermal power plants, one in Imperial County near the Salton Sea and the other in Mono County along the Eastern Sierra.


Geothermal Energy Research in Port of Rotterdam Enters Next Phase

Shell Geothermal BV and the Port of Rotterdam Authority are investigating the possibilities for geothermal energy in the Port of Rotterdam’s western section. The two companies have received an exploration permit from the Ministry of Economic Affairs for the project.


How A Climate Change Nonprofit Got Eversource Thinking About A Geothermal Future

By Bruce Gellerman Photo by Bruce Gellerman

Natural gas utilities in Massachusetts are facing an existential crisis: they could be out of business by mid-century. That’s because the state’s 2008 Global Warming Solutions Act requires emissions from burning fossil fuels — like natural gas — be cut by 80% economy-wide by 2050.


Geothermal Deal Could Lower Hawaii Island Electric Bills

A Hawaii island geothermal power company that was knocked offline by a volcanic eruption hopes to produce lower cost electricity under a new agreement with a state utility, company officials said.
