2015 Peer Review Report -- Geothermal Technologies Office

On May 11–14, 2015, the GTO conducted its bi-annual program peer review in Westminster, Colorado. In addition to providing independent, expert evaluation of the technical progress and merit of GTO-funded projects, the review was a forum for feedback and recommendations on future GTO strategic planning. Further, this event afforded an opportunity for the geothermal community to share ideas and solutions to address the challenges facing the geothermal industry.

The GTO Peer Review provides a forum for independent, expert evaluation of the technical progress and merit of GTO-funded projects. The event attracts a national and international audience in this burgeoning sector, and opens a dialogue with other respected experts in geophysics, geochemistry, modeling, down-hole tools, and more. The four-day event brought together nearly 300 participants from eight countries, industry, national labs, and academia. 110 GTO project awardees presented and an additional 21 individuals shared posters on GTO-funded research.
