Networked geothermal for heating and cooling has been making waves recently among clean energy advocates, researchers, and utilities as the “next big thing” coming in the energy transition. Given its potential for support across a wide range of stakeholders, geothermal microgrids and district systems could play a key role in decarbonization of cold climates and provide an opportunity for larger scale implementation of geothermal by utilities. And the good news is that geothermal systems are already up and running right here in Minnesota!
Join the Energy We Can’t Afford Coalition and special guests from Minnesota to Massachusetts to dig into this new technology that’s already being implemented here in Minnesota and opportunities for broader adoption.
