Super Hot Rock provides a path forward

GRC_2019_SHR_ECON

The above link is a presentation about the the economics of Super Hot Rock (SHR) resources. Generally speaking, SHR can be defined as geothermal resources that are above ~450 C. One well from a SHR resource can produce around 8-10 times the power power  conventional geothermal well. Therefore, even though these wells will be difficult to drill and complete, they will still likely provide cheaper power than current conventional geothermal systems. Leveraging advances in drilling technologies, material science and computer modeling, it is now possible to go after these resources and unlock a cheap and environmentally friend form of power.
