    WEST VIRGINIA COULD BE A GEOTHERMAL GIANT

    Hydraulic fracturing could improve geothermal energy

    Brooks McCabe, Sepember 1, 2014 (The West Virginia State Journal)

    “…The [geothermal] energy industry is evolving continuously, and the technology being used and developed in West Virginia is playing a significant role…Enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) use similar technology to that of the oil and natural gas industry. Although questions remain, the opportunities with EGS appear significant…West Virginia and its natural gas industry have roles to play in geothermal energy's future...[Geothermal hot spots have been identified and research is emerging. Geothermal energy is]…an eligible alternative source of energy in West Virginia's Alternative and Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard…[that] requires investor-owned utilities to have 25 percent alternate and renewable energy resources by 2025. At least 90 percent of this must come from eligible sources other than natural gas. Solar, wind, biomass and hydroelectric are all identified, but geothermal may be West Virginia's ace in the hole…New technologies often are cautiously received by a skeptical public...Failing to bring along an accepting public can result in West Virginia missing the opportunity to assume a role of national leadership…[but if] we can get our act together, West Virginia over the next 10 or 20 years will be an exciting place to live, work and recreate…” click here for more
