Webinar recording with Fervo Energy on key technologies to accelerate geothermal energy development
In this recent webinar, Tim Latimer, founder and CEO of Fervo Energy shares details on how novel drilling techniques can scale up geothermal energy development.
In its webinar series EnergySource: Innovation Stream on new technologies with the potential to reshape the global energy system, the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center engages on discussions with companies and individuals working diligently to bring those innovations to market at scale. On Thursday, December 17, 2020, the Global Energy Center hosted Tim Latimer, founder and chief executive officer of Fervo Energy, discussing how novel drilling techniques can scale up geothermal energy development.
With the right technologies, geothermal energy can play an important role in the energy transition. Tim Latimer discusses how Fervo’s design incorporates horizontal drilling and distributed fiber optic sensing to dramatically increase the productivity and lifetime of geothermal wells. He also described technological innovations that minimize the environmental impact of geothermal development while reducing costs.
