Speaker: Cindy Taff, Sage Geosystems

New innovations are pushing the boundaries of what is possible with geo-technologies deep in the earth, enabling energy storage that can be paired with intermittent renewables such as wind or solar and/or cost-effective geothermal power around the clock. Geo-storage is akin to upside-down pumped hydro storage, without the need for a mountain and can be installed just about everywhere (including Texas!). This talk will explore how new innovations can bring energy storage with short to long durations of 4-24+ hours and a round trip efficiency (RTE) of 70-75% and will describe a new commercially-viable approach to new generation geothermal called Geopressured Geothermal System (GGS) technology.
