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.

As part of the Obama Administration’s all-of-the-above energy strategy, the Energy Department recognized the nation’s first commercial enhanced geothermal system (EGS) project to supply electricity to the grid.
The NNSS is home to a state-of-the-art waste management facility, providing a permanent disposal option for a select group of LLW/ MLLW generators whose programs have passed a rigorous approval process.
The U.S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has issued the Final Site-Wide Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) and Off-Site Locations in Nevada. This document presents an analysis of the potential environmental impacts of continued management and operation of the NNSS (formerly known as the Nevada Test Site), the Tonopah Test Range, and two locations in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Site-Wide EIS analyzes reasonably foreseeable missions, programs, capabilities, and projects for a 10-year period.
