  • The Geo-Heat Center at Oregon Institute of Technology is located in Klamath Falls, Oregon. It was founded in 1974, with goals and objectives that included: (1) education, emphasizing the nature and uses of geothermal waters having temperatures too low for economical electric power generation; (2) development of practical, [open quotes]hands-on,[close quotes] cost effective techniques for harnessing these resources; (3) research into the locations and characteristics of these waters and identification of the sites that can, most readily, be commercially developed and, (4) provision of economic and practical assistance to anyone interested in any aspect of the geothermal direct-use business. Inmore » the 19 years that the Geo-Heat Center has been in operation, their staff has become internationally recognized as the leading source of information regarding direct use topics. The staff members have published a Quarterly Bulletin since 1975, numerous articles, pamphlets, technical papers and entire volumes concerning many subjects of interest to low-temperature geothermists. With significant financial assistance from the US Department of Energy over the years, the Heat Center staff has been able to provide many hundreds of hours of free consultation and field assistance to potential developers. The results of their work have been thoroughly documented in easily available publications that are technically and economically invaluable to those seeking to learn from the pioneers.« less
  • This article is a progress and development update of new prospects for the utilization of geothermal energy. The city of San Bernadino, California uses high-quality geothermal fluids for laundry processes without the need for water softening or heating. Four geothermal prospects in Oregon including exploration work by Amadarko, CE Exploration Company, Trans-Pacific Geothermal Corporation, and Vulcan Power Company are also reviewed.
  • This two-hour conference will provide information for audiences of school officials, designers, utility personnel, and others interested in economical, energy-efficient, and environmentally beneficial heating and cooling for schools. The April 28, 1994 teleconference will focus on applications of GHPs in school buildings, including elementary, secondary, and post-secondary schools. Program content will include case studies of successful GHP installations in a number of different building types and climates as well as interviews with designers, school administrators, and technical experts. Emphasis will be on the comfort, flexibility, economy, ease of maintenance, and other benefits of GHPs in schools. There will be opportunitymore » for downsite participants to telephone questions to GHP authorities, experienced school administrators, designers, and installers who will be in the teleconference studio. This document also discusses a new funding cycle of the Geothermal Energy Program by the California Energy Commission and a shared energy savings project which recently received funding from the Corps of Engineers in Fort Polk, Louisiana.« less
  • This document is a Progress and Development Update from the Geothermal Progress Monitor. It contains brief descriptions of progress made on varying projects involving the use of geothermal resources or research about geothermal systems. This article describes the following projects: Conversion of waste water to geothermal energy in Northern California, Hydrogen sulfide study in Hawaii, a new program at the Cerro Prieto geothermal resource in Mexico, geothermal heating of a Nevadan school, development of a geothermal fluid standard, and the broadcasting of geothermal teleconferences.
  • The Internet has experienced explosive growth in the past year. What is the Internet you might ask? The Internet (also known as the Net) is a global community of communities. As of November 1994, it is estimated that there are 30 million Internet users in over 80 countries. These millions of people, from all walks of life, count on the Internet as an integral part of their day-to-day activities. The Internet is a new way to bring information to people with the touch of a keyboard or the click of a mouse.This article describes the Geo-Heat Center Homepage, and presentsmore » some additional information on the geothermal heating of sidewalks in Klamath Falls, Oregon.« less
