President's Column
  • Registration is open for the SPE Europe Energy GeoHackathon, which will be held in October and November. It will be preceded by 4-week online bootcamp sessions on data science and geothermal energy, which will begin on 2 October.
  • While innovation steadily advances technologies to produce geothermal energy, the determination of clearly defined laws and regulations is playing catch-up—state by state and case by case in courts. And until it does, scaling up of this promising energy source is at risk of being hamstrung.
