The ARENA International Geothermal Expert Group has been established to investigate and report on the prospects for the commercial development of geothermal energy in Australia.
The ARENA International Geothermal Expert Group will critically evaluate the prospects for either Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) or Hot Sedimentary Aquifer (HSA) geothermal energy to deliver cost competitive energy to Australia without long-term subsidy.
The Expert Group’s work will inform the ARENA Board’s consideration of how to allocate and prioritise funding for geothermal energy as part of its portfolio approach to supporting renewable energy in Australia.
From 14–18 October 2013 the Expert Group will meet with stakeholders during its visit to Australia.
