The next meeting of the Los Alamos Geological Society will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday at the Christian Church, 92 East Road.
The featured speaker will be Dr. Shari Kelley of the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources. Her talk is entitled, “Geothermal Energy — The Real Thing or a Passing Fad?”
New Mexico has much potential for low- to moderate-temperature geothermal resource development that will provide direct heating for buildings, greenhouses and aquaculture.
New Mexico and the southwestern United States were evaluated for geothermal potential during the 1970s to 1980s and most of the significant, easy-to-find resources were developed during that timeframe. Over the course of the last two years, the geothermal industry has been revived nationwide.
Is the revival simply driven by an infusion of stimulus dollars into green technologies by the Obama administration or have there been important advances in technology during the last 20 to 30 years? The answer is “yes” to both questions.
The technological advances in the geothermal industry in recent years and the current direction of geothermal evaluation across our country will be presented.
