Title: GeoRePORT Protocol Volume I: Background Document

Abstract

The aim of the GeoRePORT Protocol is not to create a country-wide reporting standard for hydrothermal resources. Instead, it aims to best fit the needs of GTO in reporting impacts of its research, development, and deployment (RD&D) activities. The goals of the GeoRePORT Protocol documents are to: provide a clear, objective, comprehensive, understandable (to technical and nontechnical audiences) protocol for reporting geothermal resource grade and project progress; provide examples for using the methodology for GTO goal setting, measuring baselines, and reporting the impact of GTO-funded projects. This Protocol will help GTO to: quantitatively identify the greatest barriers to geothermal development; develop measurable program goals the will have the greatest impact to geothermal deployment; objectively evaluate proposals based (in part) on a project's ability to contribute to program goals; monitor project progress; report on GTO portfolio performance; communicate the impacts of funding decisions to non-technical budget decision makers (e.g., U.S. Congress).
