GeoRePORT Protocol Volume II: Geological Assessment Tool

Katherine Young, Alex Badgett, Patrick Dobson, Anna Wall

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


The attributes used by this protocol to describe a geothermal resource include the constraints on the quality of the geothermal resource as well as the technical and socio-economic characteristics that determine whether the heat can be produced. Attributes controlled by the structural, geophysical, geochemical, and hydrological constraints are important in describing the geological grade of a geothermal system. Other attributes important to the feasibility of extracting the geothermal resource due to technical, or socio-economic barriers are addressed in the Technical Assessment Tool and Socio-Economic Assessment Tool documents, respectively.
