Advancing Geothermal Development In New Mexico

April 18-19, 2024
Socorro, New Mexico

The workshop will be at the Fidel Center on the campus of New Mexico Tech in Socorro, NM. The workshop is free, and breakfast and lunch will be provided for in-person participants. A virtual option is also available. The meeting is timed to coincide with the NM Geological Society annual spring meeting on April 19, which this year is focused on renewable energy development in New Mexico. The NMGS meeting will also be on the NM Tech campus at Macey Center.


The workshop will include presentations and panel discussions designed to urge utilities to incorporate thermal storage networks and geothermal power plants into their alternative energy portfolios, encourage New Mexico tribes and pueblos to develop direct use projects, and inspire the oil industry to be involved in advancing geothermal energy development in New Mexico. We will also consider technical aspects of development and policy, economic, and regulatory issues. The goal is to craft a plan for forming partnerships and accelerating geothermal development in the Land of Enchantment.
