Geothermal Energy Resources in British Columbia
A Study of Factors Affecting Development and UtilizationBook - 1983
This study is concerned with the geothermal resources of the Cordilla, which includes most of B.C. and stretches into the southern Yukon and western Alberta, and the north eastern sedimentary basins. The resource may be one of several types: dry steam, wet steam, superheated water, hot water, warm water or hot dry rock. The utilization of the resources includes electrical generation, space heating, water heating, and process heat (industrial and agricultural). This study evaluates the market penetration of geothermal energy into the energy resource market of B.C. over 25 years. This involves an estimate of the location and properties of the resources available, an analysis of supply and demand compatibility, and an economic comparison with conventional energy resources. Geothermal resources external to B.C. are mainly of interest if located near to residential areas or an electrical grid within B.C.
