Come learn about the latest geothermal projects being planned in Texas!

Geothermal energy is heating up in Texas!

Sage Geosystems recently announced it will be building a first of its kind 3MW commercial facility, called EarthStore™, in Texas using their innovative technology that harvests energy from pressurized water stored deep underground. Thanks to the work of the Texas Geothermal Energy Alliance and the leadership of legislators like Senator Brian Birdwell, several key bills supporting the expansion of geothermal energy passed last session.

As part of UT Energy Week, this Energy Innovation Forum brings together leading experts to discuss the latest geothermal technology breakthroughs, the status of implementing geothermal related legislation from last session and what more the legislature can do to support this rapidly growing industry.

Join us on Tuesday, March 26th from 4:00 - 5:30pm at the Capitol to hear from this incredible line up of speakers:

After an overview presentation by Dr. Ken Wisian, Matt Welch will moderate our panel discussion with Sen. Brian Birdwell, Cindy D. Taff, Jennifer Bremer, Dr. Ken Wisian and Jason Sorter. An audience Q&A will be followed by a networking reception with food and drinks in the Members Lounge.
