Thermoelectric Generator Application and Pilot Test in a Geothermal Field
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
TEG technologies have the potential to produce geothermal electricity without as much infrastructure (turbines, steam piping, etc.) thus making small scale production and geothermal powered micro power grids both practicable and affordable. Small (<5 MW) geothermal projects could provide consumers with the same distributed power flexibility provided by solar and wind production with the additional benefit of being a more reliable base load source of electricity TEG technologies can also allow geothermal heat to provide balancing and grid support. This project will scale up to a TEG from the watt-level in the lab to a 20kW unit for demonstration in a geothermal reservoir.
