GLRPPR Sector Resource: DOE-funded Geothermal Plant World's First Using Low-Temperature Technology

Title:
DOE-funded Geothermal Plant World's First Using Low-Temperature Technology

Abstract:
Alaska Governor Frank Murkowski cut the ribbon August 20, 2006 to officially dedicate Alaska's first geothermal energy plant at Chena Hot Springs. The geothermal system, funded in part through an Energy Department grant, is the first in the world to use a new technology that makes electricity generation possible at lower temperatures, a breakthrough that will make geothermal power plants feasible in a greater number of locations than today's high-temperature technologies.
