Geothermal energy: Look to the Denver-Julesberg Basin
To offset the need for fuel imports, to decrease greenhouse gas emissions, and to increase U.S. energy independence, geothermal energy has emerged as an important part of the U.S. energy portfolio.  View News Article (2015-10-13)

Geologist troubleshoots silica problem at geothermal plants
In the debate over alternative energy resources, geothermal technology has received scant media attention. Advocates call it one of the cleanest, sustainable energy resources available. However, steep construction, equipment and drilling costs have prevented more widespread development of geothermal technology. View News Article (2007-03-14)

Mines could provide geothermal energy
Mine shafts on the point of being closed down could be used to provide geothermal energy to local towns. View News Article (2009-07-27)

New geothermal heat extraction process to deliver clean power generation
A new method for capturing significantly more heat from low-temperature geothermal resources holds promise for generating virtually pollution-free electrical energy. Scientists at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will determine if their innovative approach can safely and economically extract and convert heat from vast untapped geothermal resources. View News Article (2009-07-17)

Geothermal industry to get boost from University of Nevada, Reno research
An ambitious University of Nevada, Reno project to understand and characterize geothermal potential at nearly 500 sites throughout the Great Basin is yielding a bounty of information for the geothermal industry to use in developing resources in Nevada, according to a report to the U.S. Department of Energy.  View News Article (2011-07-11)

Intelligent use of the Earth's heat
Geothermal energy is increasingly contributing to the power supply world wide. Iceland is world-leader in expanding development of geothermal utilization: in recent years the annual power supply here doubled to more than 500 MW alone in the supply of electricity. View News Article (2009-02-27)

Magma power for geothermal energy?
When a team of scientists drilling near an Icelandic volcano hit magma in 2009, they had to abandon their planned experiments on geothermal energy. View News Article (2011-02-18)

SMU's David Blackwell touts nationwide geothermal energy potential at Capitol Hill science briefing
SMU Geothermal energy expert David Blackwell gave a Capitol Hill briefing Tuesday, March 27, on the growing opportunities for geothermal energy production in the United States, calling "unconventional" geothermal techniques a potential game changer for U.S. energy policy.  View News Article (2012-03-30)

Helium isotopes point to the best sources of geothermal energy
With fossil fuel sources depleting and global warming on the rise, exploring alternative means of power for humans is a necessary reality. View News Article (2007-12-03)

Earthquake swarms not just clustered around volcanoes, geothermal regions
An earthquake swarm - a steady drumbeat of moderate, related seismic events - over hours or days, often can be observed near a volcano such as Mount St. Helens in Washington state or in a geothermal region such as Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. View News Article (2006-10-26)
