Benefit/Cost Analysis of Geothermal Technology R&D. Volume IV: Geochemical and Materials Engineering

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This volume presents the benefit/cost analysis of 45 R and D projects sponsored by the Geochemical and Materials Engineering program of the Utilization Technology Branch, Division of Geothermal Energy, Department of Energy, as of F.Y. 1978. Benefits of the R and D projects were estimated as potential cost savings in electricity production of geothermal power plants installed in the years 1979-2000 at 27 US liquid-dominated geothermal prospects. The total cost saving was found to be from 3.9 to 8.5% making the overall benefit/cost ratio of the R and D projects fall somewhere between 18.3 and 39.8.
