GRC Announces New Board of Directors

Patrick Hanson and Andrew Sabin join the new Geothermal Resources Council Board of Directors

(Davis, Calif.) The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) is governed by a Board of Directors, elected by the general membership to 2-year terms. To provide continuity, half of the Board is elected every year. All GRC members are eligible for election to the Board of Directors.


The GRC membership took part in the ballot in the late fall, and the Inspector Committee, consisting of Board of Directors' Marilyn Nemzer and Paul Brophy, met at the GRC headquarters in Davis, California, to count the votes in early January.

The result was that two new members of the Board were elected.

Patrick Hanson works for Scientific Drilling International in Houston, Texas, as their Global Geothermal Marketing Representative. He has been particularly visible at GRC Annual Meetings as chair of the Fund Raising committee and of the Golf Tournament committee.

Andy Sabin is Director of the Navy Geothermal Program Office, China Lake, in California. At the last GRC Annual Meeting in San Diego, Andy was Chair of the Technical Program committee.

At the end of 2011, the GRC membership stood at 1,777, an all-time record, with members from 45 countries. The Board of Directors includes three international members.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
