What: Nevada Petroleum & Geothermal Society Monthly Dinner Meeting
When: Thursday, March 5, 2015
Speaker: David Boden, PhD., Professor of Geosciences, Truckee Meadows Community College
Title: Some Observations from Visiting Icelandic and The Geysers Geothermal Systems
Come to the Reno Ramada and learn about Dr. David Boden’s visit to Iceland and The Geysers! Iceland’s geothermal energy provides about 26% of its power (the balance provided by hydroelectric plants) and the space heating and hot water needs of about 88% of all buildings in Iceland (about 98% in Reykjavik). The Geysers, located about 75 miles north of San Francisco, CA, is the world’s foremost developed geothermal resource spread over about 45 square miles and hosting 15 power plants. It is also the world’s largest vapor- or steam-dominated geothermal resource that during the late 1980s and early 1990s produced as much as 2000 MW of power.
