Journey to SuperHot Rocks: Improving Geothermal Economics by Drilling into Rock Above the Critical Temperature

Moderator: Susan Petty

Points of discussion:

  1. Project economics and finance
  2. Reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide with increased geothermal generation
  3. Drilling technology advances to get to supercritical temperatures anywhere
  4. Well design for SuperHot geothermal
  5. The SuperHot resource – where can we find temperatures >400C at shallow depths and how deep do we need to go to get this resource to the most people
