Annual US Geothermal Power Production and Development Report, April 2012

Basic Information
Author:
Description:The Annual US Geothermal Power Production and Development Report, dated April 2012, is a summary of development and production, tables of projects and capacity in development. GEA is reporting project information provided by developers or public sources. To increase the accuracy and value of information presented in its annual US Geothermal Power Production and Development Report, the Geothermal Energy Association developed a reporting system known as the Geothermal Reporting Terms and Definitions in 2010. The Geothermal Reporting Terms and Definitions serve as a guideline to project developers in reporting geothermal project development information to the GEA. A basic understanding of the Geothermal Reporting Terms and Definitions will also aid the reader in fully understanding the information presented in this annual report. In addition to defining their projects, developers also indicate to GEA their projects current status in the project development timeline using a four phase system. This system captures how much, and what type of, work has been performed on that particular geothermal resource up until the present time. Finally, at each phase of a projects development a geothermal developer has the opportunity to report two project capacity estimates, a Resource Capacity estimate and a Planned Capacity Addition estimate. This resource was provided by the Arizona Geological Survey and made available for distribution through the National Geothermal Data System.
