- Ronald DiPippo, Renewable Energy Consultant, Chancellor Professor Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, N. Dartmouth,, MA, USA
Now in its 3e, this single resource covers all aspects of the utilization of geothermal energy for power generation using fundamental scientific and engineering principles. Its practical emphasis is enhanced by the use of case studies from real plants that increase the reader's understanding of geothermal energy conversion and provide a unique compilation of hard-to-obtain data and experience.
Important new chapters cover Hot Dry Rock, Enhanced Geothermal Systems, and Deep Hydrothermal Systems. New, international case studies provide practical, hands-on knowledge.
Geothermal reservoir engineers; geothermal professionals (engineers, scientists, managers) Secondary audience:
Petroleum engineering and ground water professionals interested in geothermal energy, earth scientists, geoscientists
