Socio-­economic Roadmaps to Commercial Geothermal Energy Production in W. Canada

The goal of the Future Energy Systems research in geothermal energy is to produce scientific, engineering, economic, environmental, and social research in support of three specific types of geothermal power applications available to Canadians. This project is aimed at assessing regulatory, economic, environmental, and sociological pathways and impacts of utilizing geothermal energy in Canada.
