Geothermal Energy: The 3-Day MBA will take place on November 19 – 21, 2013. This course is presented by Green Power Academy. New York, USA. It offers a comprehensive introduction to the technology, markets, economics, financial risks and returns of geothermal energy.
MIT recently suggested that geothermal capacity in the US alone could potentially be 100,000 MW within the next 50 years; and this is an energy source that provides a reliable, highly productive source of electricity. Yet the industry has been adding capacity at only 1-2% per year, while other, more unpredictable renewable sources such as wind and solar have boomed.
This course provides an unrivaled, independent introduction to the geothermal energy business, explaining both its opportunities and advantages within the energy mix and the barriers and risks – both technological and financial – that currently prevent faster growth.
Key Learning Objectives
•A comprehensive understanding of geothermal energy, with particular focus on power generation but including the commercial opportunities through heat
•Clear explanations of the key aspects of geothermal technology – including resources, exploration, drilling and plant operations, using clear language suited to senior commercial people and non-engineers
•The market economic and competitive context of geothermal energy, including energy characteristics, supply, demand and pricing; plus external influences and market trends
•The key processes, phases and risk factors in individual geothermal projects
•Quantifying the variability and sensitivity of project variables and financial returns by analysis of a cash flow spreadsheet and associated data
•Understanding how different policy mechanisms impact the business plan and impact revenues, returns and risks
