GRC Workshop: The Power of the National Geothermal Data System

Drilling Down: How Legacy and New Research Data Can Advance Geothermal Development—The Power of the National Geothermal Data System (NGDS)

A workshop at the Geothermal Resources Council Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada


The National Geothermal Data System's (NGDS) launch in 2014 will provide open access to millions of datasets, sharing technical geothermal-relevant data across the geosciences to propel geothermal development and production forward. By aggregating findings from the Energy Department's RD&D projects and consistent, reliable geological and geothermal information from all 50 states, this free, interactive tool can shorten project development timelines and facilitate scientific discovery and best practices. Stop by our workshop for an overview of how your company can benefit from implementing, and participating in this open-source based, distributed network.
