Notable Event around town:Digging Deep for Clean, Cheap Energy: Geothermal Potential in New York City.
7:00pm Solar 1 Green Renter
Speaker: David Ortiz, Project Manager, DMJM Harris
Geothermal (?geo?= earth; ?therm? = heat) refers to separate forms of clean, renewable energy that are derived from deep underground sources. Most commonly the term is understood to mean the exploitation of the hot gas and water trapped beneath the earth?s surface for common energy services such as heating, cooling and electricity generation. It can also describe the process of tapping the constant temperature of the earth to provide efficient heating and cooling. Here in New York City a growing number of developers and architects are giving this latter method of energy transfer a closer look because it is clean, cost-effective and locally available. In fact, Solar 2 ? Solar One?s future state-of-the-art, carbon neutral headquarters ? will utilize geothermal technology for its temperature control.
Join geothermal specialist David Ortiz of the DMJM Harris engineering firm for an introductory overview of this growing but under-exploited local energy resource.Directions to Solar One:
