Earth Source Heat: Renewable Energy Source for the Future?
Thursday, October 6 â€“ Washington, DC
Cornell is pursuing a project that has the potential to eliminate an estimated 82,000 metric tons of carbon from its annual footprint and establish one of the countryâ€™s most advanced geothermal systems to heat the 745-acre Ithaca campus â€“ an effort that could demonstrate a new scalable model for using this sustainable energy source throughout the U.S. and almost anywhere in the world. Cornell is calling the project â€œEarth Source Heat.â€ This effort to explore the potential of enhanced geothermal energy will combine Cornellâ€™s world-leading energy and sustainability researchers with the living laboratory of Cornellâ€™s facilities over the next two decades.
Hear our panel of speakers discuss this innovative research and how it could open new doors for renewable energy.
Lance R. Collins, Joseph Silbert Dean of Engineering
Katie Keranen, Assistant Professor of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
