Small scale electricity production from low temperature geothermal resources using organic rankine cycle
Written by
Emilía Valdimarsdóttir 1986


The most common use of geothermal energy for electricity production is by using the fluid in it's vapor state. Low temperature geothermal sources in liquid form are, in many areas in Iceland, used for district heating. Another possible utilization of the low temperature geothermal resource is to ...

Algorithm for optimal well placement in geothermal systems based on TOUGH2 models
Written by
Dagur Helgason 1988


In a world of ever increasing use of renewables geothermal has lagged behind and has seen little growth compared to other renewables due in part to its high capital cost. Geothermal wells account for about a third of the capital cost and it is therefore important to ensure the highest possible su... (886 characters more)
