Getting warmer: the search for geothermal resources in Tasmania [Video]

TAS Tech TalkTitle: Getting warmer: the search for geothermal resources in TasmaniaPresenter: Dr John Bishop, Spa*ark EnergyDate: Thursday 28th AprilAbstract:Geothermal power plants provide emission-free, baseload or load-following (i.e., dispatchable) electricity 24/7 from the smallest footprint of all generators. And excess heat from the plants has several applications including drying, aquaculture, spas, etc. Two large, code-compliant inferred geothermal resources have been defined in eastern Tasmania, associated with some of Australia’s highest recorded heat flows. A suite of geophysical surveys suggests that one has zones of high permeability, making it akin to a conventional hydrothermal play, albeit a non-volcanic one. Recent developments in mineral extraction from geothermal brines add to the potential utility of the resources.

Leveraging Houston’s Financial and Human Capital for Sustainable Energy Transitions 2 [Video]

Apr. 22, 2022nfluenced by consumer and investor preference, policy and corporate action are driving a transition toward lower-carbon energy systems. Innovation, policy, commercial considerations and the principle of comparative advantage will be instrumental in determining the pace of the transition, and it will look different across different regions. Enabling energy transitions requires connecting, attracting and growing relationships among corporations, innovators, capital providers and the workforce to establish the supply chain depths needed to achieve the scale required. Houston’s reputation as the energy capital of the world is the result of its deep legacy in the oil and gas industry. But the factors that contributed to this moniker are not simply oil and gas resources. They are rooted in a deep human capital endowment that reflects an entrepreneurial spirit and expertise in engineering and supply chain logistics, as well as a business-friendly environment, a lot of land and robust ports. Today, Houston’s leadership is looking to ways to transition to a carbon-neutral energy future that leverages all of the region’s advantages. During this conference, we hear from corporate, national and local leadership across supply chains for different forms of energy to better understand how Houston is seeking to leverage its comparative advantages to lead in energy transitions.WELCOME AND INTRODUCTIONKenneth B.
