Geothermal Industry Leaders to Discuss Industry Growth: Annual U.S. Geothermal Power Production and Development Report

What:


Join the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) and geothermal industry leaders for a press conference call to discuss the release of GEA's latest industry report, the Annual U.S. Geothermal Power Production and Development Report. Participants will include GEA Executive Director Karl Gawell, and executives from top U.S. geothermal companies, including Energy Source, Ormat, TAS Energy and U.S. Geothermal Inc. The discussion will focus on the report's findings, including overall industry growth, emerging technologies that are spreading the reach of geothermal, and challenges for future expansion. While the U.S. continues to outpace every other nation in the world when it comes to installed geothermal capacity, it has not yet reached its full potential, due in part to inconsistent federal policies. Industry leaders will discuss this year's successes, challenges, and what needs to be done to advance the industry in the coming years.

Who:

Karl Gawell, Executive Director, Geothermal Energy Association

Dan Jennejohn, Research Associate, Geothermal Energy Association

Derek Benson, Director, Project Development, Energy Source

Halley Dickey, Director Geothermal Business Development, TAS Energy

TBD, U.S. Geothermal Inc.

Paul Thomsen, Director, Ormat Technologies, Inc.

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.
