WGSI Presents Webinar for Emerging Leaders in Environment and Energy

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

WGSI recently hosted an interactive webinar for the Emerging Leaders in Environment and Energy Policy (ELEEP), a forum of transatlantic young influencers assembled by the Atlantic Council and the Ecologic Institute. The session, called ‘Unleashing Geopower’, explores the technical options and policy considerations for geothermal technologies.

Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) are capable of tapping into our planet’s virtually inexhaustible heat, from anywhere. With deep enough drilling, any country can harness this energy into an abundant renewable energy resource for electricity generation. We have the technology to drill, but do we have the will power and the pocket book?

Dr. Jatin Nathwani, Executive Director of the Waterloo Institute for Sustainable Energy (WISE), University of Waterloo, and the Equinox Summit Scientific Advisor, shares insights from the Energy 2030 Blueprint.
