  • Lessons from Indonesia: Mobilizing Investment in Geothermal Energy

    Developing countries will need about $531 billion of additional investments in clean energy technologies every year in order to limit global temperature rise to 2°C above pre-industrial levels, thus preventing climate change’s worst impacts. To attract investments on the scale required, developing country governments, with ...

  • Artificial geothermal energy potential of steam-flooded heavy oil reservoirs

    This paper explores the concept of harnessing geothermal energy from heavy oil fields that have undergone steam flooding and so accumulated substantial heat from steam injection. Once the steam flooding process reaches economic cut-off resulting from high water cut and/or high steam-to-oil ratio, the reservoir would be abandoned, leaving behind stored energy in the form of heat. From this point, ...

  • A BME solution of the stochastic three-dimensional Laplace equation representing a geothermal field subject to site-specific information

    This work develops a model of the geothermal field in the Nea Kessani region (Greece) by means of the Bayesian maximum entropy (BME) method, which describes the temperature variations across space in the underground geological formations. The geothermal field is formed by a thermal reservoir consisting of arcosic sandstones. The temperature distribution vs depth was first investigated by the ...

  • Case Study - Aluto Langano Power Plant Rehabilitation

    Aluto Langano, Ethiopia – 2007 The Aluto Langano Geothermal Pilot Plant (ALGPP) is located on the Aluto volcanic complex of the Ethiopian Rift valley, close to the eastern escarpment between Lake Langano and Lake Ziway, some 200 km southeast of Addis Ababa. The Aluto volcanic complex is a young acidic system consisting of domes, lava, and pyroclastic interbeds. The geothermal field was ...

  • Heat as a by–product or sub–product of CO2 storage in mafic and ultramafic rocks

    Since carbonates are at a lower energy state than free CO2, storage through carbonation of silicate rocks is thermodynamically favoured and proceeds spontaneously by releasing heat. In an in–situ CO2 injection site, the heat released in these exothermic reactions can be exploited in a geothermal power–plant, effectively contributing ...

  • Fossil Fuel Development in the Arctic is a Bad Investment

    Even master chess players can miss a great move when they have been primed to look for a different one. To explore this phenomenon, researchers tracked master chess players’ eye movements when given chessboards with different layouts. With the first board, players could reach checkmate using a familiar move. When given the second chessboard, the players' eyes kept looking at the pieces ...

  • Mobilizing Climate Investment: The role of international climate finance in creating scaled-up, low-carbon energy

    Between now and 2050, developing countries need an estimated $531 billion per year of additional investment in energy supply and demand technologies in order to limit global temperature rise to 2° C above pre-industrial levels. To achieve this scale of investment, developing country governments and custodians of international public finance will need to deploy limited public finance in ways ...
