The summer academy is a collection of eight individual short courses covering the “end-to-end” development of a geothermal system for electrical power generation, from initial exploration to market and political policies that make geothermal power plants cost competitive.  The emerging and high-growth areas of direct use and ground source heat pumps are also included.This program is intended for outstanding undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals with strong backgrounds in science, math, and/or engineering.

Addtional information on the program is provided in our paper to the 2015 World Geothermal Congress linked here.
