Basic Information

Description:Editor's Note: This article was prepared and published in the Progress Monitor by the Meridian Corporation of Falls Church, VA under a contract with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). It recaps and underscores the positive development that has taken place in both research and field development in the U.S. Geothermal Community from 1974 to 1984. Because of the size of the volume, it will be run in the BULLETIN in three parts. This is part two. Industry is currently commercializing the flash steam technology on its own, with minimal recent assistance from government. DOE, on the other hand, has been concentrating its resources on binary technology in an effort to reduce its cost to a level that will be economically attractive for the use of moderate-temperature reservoirs 150-200C (302-392F).
