News – PH – NREL: Students shed light on profound geothermal benefits in the Infographic Design Challenge


Last fall, the US. The Department of Energy’s Geothermal Technology Bureau (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) commissioned college students to uncover a true buried treasure: Geothermal EnergyAt the Fall 2020 Geothermal Design Challenge ™, students were asked to perform an important communication task Cope: Create infographics and data visualization to promote understanding of geothermal energy, fully communicate its benefits, and overcome key non-technical barriers to geothermal development. Students from the United States designed powerful, high quality infographics to illustrate aspects of geothermal generation They rely on robust engineering data and are accompanied by communication and contact strategies to maximize impactThree submissions stood out in the packPicture of first infographicThe University of North Dakota team’s first infographic shows the benefits of geothermal See full-page version PDFIn the first place The infographic PDF “Geothermal Applications for the World” by the Thermal Vision team at the University of North Dakota (UND) highlights the benefits and global use of eight common uses of geothermal energy: drying in agriculture, cooking, greenhouse heating, aquaculture, power generation , Space heating, snowmelt and bathing and swimming The AND team includes the graduated geophysicist Moones Alamooti, ​​PhD, Petroleum Engineering PhD Student Jerjes Porlles Hurtado and Jessica Eagle-Bluestone, who holds a Masters Degree in Petroleum Engineering Team member Alamooti recognizes both AND and the Challenge Reviewers for making their submission so positive, “We have an excellent geothermal program at the University of North Dakota under Dr Will Gosnold’s supervision, “said Alamooti” It was very important for our multidisciplinary team to share the knowledge gained with other people in order not only to raise awareness of these renewable resources, but also to encourage engagement. The Geothermal Design Challenge offered ours Team provided a platform to achieve our goal in a very effective way, especially after the constructive feedback we received after our first postUniversity of California at Santa Cruz, Geo Slugs won second place with “Green & Unseen: The Future Geothermal Energy, ”a digital infographic that sheds light on new developments in geothermal energy and focuses on how systems large and small can benefit people, businesses and the planet through renewable power, district heating and more. Third, Antelope Valley College students have“ The Heat Beneath Our Feet ”, an infographic PDF that describes how Geothermal Heat Pumps Provide an Affordable Solution for Residential Heating and Cooling As part of the Geothermal Design Challenge, DOE inspires students to develop innovative solutions to geothermal application challenges while developing professional skills to prepare them for the clean energy workforce DOE wants to work with students who are not traditionally involved in geothermal energy to raise awareness of geothermal resources in communities and the general public and thus expand the base of geothermal stakeholders. For Elisabet Metcalfe, geologist in the DOE office for geothermal energy and competition manager, the challenge is an opportunity Delivering on the promise of the Office’s 2019 GeoVision Report, the report includes an analysis of the undeveloped American energy giant geothermal as well as a roadmap to realizing a potential 26x increase in US. geothermal electricity generation by 2050 This capacity increase offers enormous potential for the use of geothermal energy for heating and cooling GeoVision analysis models show the possibility for more than 17500 district heating systems and for heating and cooling millions of households with geothermal pumps by 2050 “Personnel development is a key component of the GeoVision roadmap,” said Metcalfe “The Geothermal Design Challenge is a wonderful opportunity to get students to learn more about geothermal research. Sarah Gomach and Caity Smith, from NREL, led the competition. Gomach praised the creative and geographic diversity of the competitors, as well as their approaches to community engagement.” had teams from universities in the US creating infographics that tried to connect geothermal energy to our everyday lives They explained where geothermal energy comes from and what to do with it, “said Gomach.” The teams were creative in conveying this information, providing detailed contact plans for sharing with their local communities and, more generally, the spring 2021 geothermal college competition is in In progress, with an emphasis on direct community use
