A Q&A feature in the Webinar platform allows for the audience to ask questions of the speaker at the end of the presentation. The sessions will be held at 7:30 PM on the first Tuesday of the month, as was the custom pre-Covid.

Geothermal Energy

and Its Role in Alberta's Energy Future

Geothermal energy is often touted as a natural resource that can provide vast amounts of clean, low-carbon energy for heating or electricity generation, yet Canada lags other nations when it comes to geothermal energy resource development. This talk will explore the scientific and technical fundamentals behind different geothermal systems as well as potential environmental and socioeconomic issues, enabling audience members to better assess the challenges and opportunities for geothermal energy in Alberta.
