2009 Alaska Geothermal Conference

by Tom
(Anchorage, AK)


The 2009 Alaska Geothermal Conference will feature tours of the new power plant, geothermal greenhouse facilities, and a reception in the world-famous Aurora Ice Museum.

Meeting sessions will focus on Geothermal Power Applications, Geothermal Direct Use Applications, and Geothermal Exploration.

The 400-kW geothermal power plant at Chena is a first-of-its-kind installation that utilizes the lowest temperature (160oF) geothermal resource used for power generation worldwide.

Chena Hot Springs Resort is being developed as a sustainable community with commitments to renewable energy, energy independence, self sufficiency and environmental stewardship. All buildings at Chena are linked by a geothermal district heating system.

In addition to the hot springs, the resort has three greenhouses, geothermally heated to 85oF, to provide fresh produce to the restaurant, and an Ice Museum, cooled primarily with the geothermal water through the use of a 15-ton capacity absorption chiller. Other renewable energy projects include a water "ram" used to supply the resort’s water tower, a solar water fountain, and a facility to produce hydrogen through geothermal hydrolysis.

When: April 28-30, 2009
Where: Chena Hot Springs Resort, outside Fairbanks, AK
