Launched in 2020, the annual PIVOT ‘From Hydrocarbons to Heat’ events are a decade-long series aimed at tracking, celebrating, and instigating oil and gas industry engagement in geothermal research, development, and scale, so an announcement. The theme of the first year, “Kicking off the Geothermal Decade” has become a tagline for media and industry alike is describing the opportunity in this massive clean energy resource.
This year’s event aims for the bleeding edge – new research, new data, new initiatives, and new entities engaged. The event focuses on emerging voices and new data that has not been publicly available from leading startups.
The days are split into themes to make it easy for participants to focus on the type of sessions they wish to participate in. The program is available through this link but the speaker lineup is set to launch in two weeks.
A concert on the weekend of July 22 to 23 with an incredible lineup of musicians will kick off PIVOT 2022. The concert will be livestreamed for free globally. More details on the concert are available here.
There will also be a closing celebration on July 29 at Karbach Brewery in Houston. Entry is free, but space is limited. Those interested in attending are encouraged to register ahead via this link.
As part of PIVOT 2022, there will be a competition for disruptive research ideas relevant to making geothermal globally scalable. There will be cash prizes awarded for the two winning teams in the form of a grant to the relevant research institution. The deadline for submissions to this competition is on July 1, 2022. Entries are accepted via this link.
Lastly, a Geothermal Datathon will challenge participants to use their data and engineering skills to solve a real-world EGS problem using data from Utah FORGE.
