Call for papers: On the future development of superhot and supercritical geothermal systems

Engineered Geothermal Systems (EGS) have been in the focus of interest for geothermal exploitation for several decades, mostly in the context of moderate-temperature resources. The development of high-temperature geothermal fields with supercritical conditions are emerging as a new hot topic in various parts of the world since a significantly higher power output seems feasible with less drilling required. 

Call for papers: Tracers in Deep Geothermal Systems

Exploitation of deep geothermal energy can greatly reduce greenhouse gas emission associated with heat and electricity generation. Development of new geothermal reservoirs (including heat storage), however, depends on creating, or finding, flow systems that can provide sustained heat exchange.

Featured article: Geophysical survey of geothermal energy potential in the Liaoji Belt, northeastern China

Read the full article hereUsing high-precision gravity, aeromagnetic and magnetotelluric data, Peng et al. present the first investigation of the geothermal energy potential of the Liaoji Belt via the integration of geological and non-seismic geophysical data to determine the thermal structure of the area and delineate geothermal targets.

Aims and scope

Geothermal Energy – Science, Society and Technology focuses on fundamental and applied research needed to deploy technologies for developing and integrating geothermal energy as one key element in the future energy portfolio. Contributions include geological, geophysical, and geochemical studies, exploration of geothermal fields, reservoir characterization and modeling, development of productivity-enhancing methods, and approaches to achieve robust and economic plant operation. Geothermal EnergyScience, Society and Technology serves to examine the interaction of individual system components while taking the whole process into account, from the development of the reservoir to the economic provision of geothermal energy.
