Conference | Workshop | Keynote Luncheon
March 12 - 14, 2013
SMU Campus in Dallas, Texas
Southern Methodist University (SMU) Geothermal Lab is hosting its 6th Geothermal Energy Utilization Conference in March. Jon Wellinghoff, Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, will serve as the keynote speaker; and Doug Hollett, Program Manager of the DOE Geothermal Technologies Program, will be the evening reception presenter.
This conference brings together individuals from all aspects of project development for electrical production from subsurface geothermal energy and the captured waste heat from surface mechanical equipment. Both technologies have proven applications in oil and gas fields. All attendees will hear a single track of presentations with 30-minute breaks designed for networking and team building. Tours of the pressure equipment demonstration will be available. The conference goal is to advance the understanding of energy production so that companies can successfully produce emission-free energy, while extending the life of an oil or gas field.
The pre-conference workshop on March 12, "A Primer on Geothermal Energy Resources and Waste Heat Technologies," will provide an introduction for those new to the geothermal and waste-heat communities. Four Continuing Education Credits provided.
The FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff Keynote Luncheon is offered as a separate item, so the wider energy community can meet with him. Individuals and companies are invited to sponsor tables of eight to highlight clients at this event. Chairman Wellinghoff oversees the regulations associated with the interstate transmission of electricity, oil, and gas, as well as proposals for pipelines, LNG, and hydropower projects.
