Geothermal heat at PIVOT 2022 online geothermal conference

Don’t miss the PIVOT 2022 “All Hands on Deck” geothermal conference July 25-29, 2022 and in particularly the all important topic of heat and the connected panels.

This year’s PIVOT geothermal conference looks like already a big success. … with a tremendously ambitious, exciting and full program, the event promises an incredibly amount of fantastic sessions.  So don’t miss PIVOT 2022 – All Hands on Deck.

The event will be a full five days with “spirited panel, roundtable, competition, and fireside chat style sessions on a variety of contemporary geothermal topics. Each day at PIVOT2022 will follow a different theme, so attendees can easily focus on the topics that are most relevant to them. PIVOT2022 will be translated live into ten languages, and is free to attend. All are welcome globally.

While doing discredit to the many many other sessions, I would love to point to some of the specific sessions focused on heat. It is one of the most beneficial attributes of geothermal energy for the global energy transition (heat transition) that makes this an important topic. Furthermore it is an utterly timely topic also in the light of national security in the context of the Ukrainian situation and Europe’s luring energy crisis. So here a few sessions – likely not complete – that I think should be of particular interest (not only as I am part of two sessions).

Monday July 25

1.00 pm (GMT) – Earth as a Heat Battery: Could the Subsurface Solve Energy Storage (with Nick Cestari, Joseph Batir, Ph.D., Dr. Palash Panja, Travis McLink, Dr. Jack Norbeck)

Tuesday, July 26

5:00 pm (GMT) – From Hydrocarbons to Heat: Technology Transfer, Development, Acceleration & Scale/ A Future of Geothermal in Texas Report Preview (with Rebecca Schulz, P. Pejman) Shoeibi Omrani, Gioia Falcone, Dragutin Domitrovic, Junichi Sugiura)

But of course there are a ton of other sessions on venture capital, technologies and so much more that are as exciting (and maybe even more… ) But don’t miss this exciting event.
