Thursday, November 7, 2019 5:31 pm

This submission includes input and results data from analysis done as part of the Geothermal Technology Office's Geothermal Vision Study (GeoVision). The submission includes data for both analysis of the electricity sector and the heating and cooling sector. For the electricity sector, the submission includes geothermal resource potential and development cost inputs for the ReEDS model and ReEDS model results of projected installed capacity and generation of geothermal and other technologies under the GeoVision scenarios. It also includes results from environmental and social impacts analysis. For the cooling sector, the submission includes geothermal resource potential and development cost inputs for the dGeo model and dGeo model results of economic, market, and deployment potential. Air quality (emissions) resultsl for the BAU, IRT and TI GeoVision scenarios. Results include total electric sector emissions by year for SO2, NOx, and PM2.5 for all GeoVision scenarios, and cumulative electric sector emissions benefits by state for the TI scenario relative to the BAU scenario.
