The 2012 George Seddon Lecture will be given by Winthrop Professor Klaus Regenauer-Lieb Director, The Western Australian Geothermal Centre of Excellence (WAGCOE).
Geothermal energy from hot sedimentary aquifers (HSA) is recognised by the International Energy Agency as amongst the most cost-effective low emissions energy source. Over the last three years the Western Australian Government together with an unincorporated partnership comprising CSIRO, UWA and Curtin University has made significant investment into the development of HSA technology and funded research undertaken by the Western Australian Geothermal Centre of Excellence.
Professor Regenauer-Lieb will present the outcomes of this research and showcase a number of novel technologies for the application of geothermal energy in not only electricity generation but also energy use displacement through ‘direct heat’ use applications.
The annual George Seddon Lecture is presented by the UWA Friends of the Grounds and the Institute of Advanced Studies.
This is a free public lecture, however seats are limited.
