AFE 2022: Beyond Wind, Solar, other VER’s: Deep Hot Dry Rock Geothermal (DHDRG) Energy; Eliminates Transmission & Storage

February 7, 2022 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Deep Hot Dry Rock Geothermal (DHDRG) energy, when we engineer how to bore “deep enough, cheap enough” to profitably access it, will be the ultimate in Distributed Energy Resources (DER), allowing us to supply GHG-emission-free electricity and low-grade heat via autonomous micro- and mini-grids. DHDRG energy, from 6 – 10 km deep, is benign, ubiquitous on Earth, baseload, firm and dispatchable, inexhaustible, and provides free storage: keep heat in the ground until needed. Applicable to both village and urban Alaska.
