Direct use features describe facilities that utilize geothermal energy directly without transformation to electricity. See the NREL Geothermal Direct Use web page for more information. The template here is based on the Direct Use Site spreadsheet provided by the GeoHeat center at the Oregon Institute of Technology.
This template defines the content model for a service that delivers Geothermal Direct Use site features. Many of these will be standard map location and IDs, but other information may be delivered. The geothermal direct use content model should be used when compiling data from published and unpublished reports, maps and databases. The content model presented here is intended to present key information necessary to query a direct use feature service and to evaluate the information.
Direct use point features describe facilities that utilize geothermal energy directly without transformation to electricity. Symbols were chosen arbitrarily.
