    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Geothermal Technologies Program (GTP) is committed to developing and deploying a portfolio of innovative technologies for clean, domestic power generation. The Geothermal Technologies Program researches, develops, and validates innovative and cost-competitive technologies and tools to locate, access, and develop geothermal resources in the United States. We work in partnership with industry, academia, and DOE's national laboratories on research and development activities focused on these five areas: Enhanced Geothermal Systems Hydrothermal and Resource Confirmation Low-Temperature Resources Systems Analysis Technology Validation Why it Matters Geothermal energy, a virtually untapped energy resource derived from the earth's heat, is more vital today than ever—it supplies clean, renewable power around the clock, emits little or no greenhouse gases, and takes a very small environmental footprint to develop. By developing, demonstrating, and deploying innovative technologies, GTP's efforts are helping stimulate the growth of the geothermal industry within the renewable energy sector and encouraging quick adoption of technologies by the public and private sectors.

    JRSE, published by the American Institute of Physics, is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal covering all areas of renewable and sustainable energy-related fields that apply to the physical science and engineering communities. Content is published online daily, collected into bimonthly issues (6 times a year). As an electronic-only, web-based journal with rapid publication time, JRSE is responsive to the many new developments expected in this field. The interdisciplinary approach of the publication ensures that the editors draw from researchers worldwide in a diverse range of fields. Topics covered include: * Bioenergy – bioreactions and bioengineering * Geothermal energy – geysers, heat pumps, and novel devices * Marine and hydroelectric energy – waves, tides, and dams * Nuclear energy – fission, fusion, and related materials * Solar energy – photovoltaics and solar thermal converters * Wind energy – turbines and electrical systems and controls * Energy conversion – solid oxide and proton exchange membrane fuel cells and novel devices * Energy efficient buildings – photovoltaics, solar thermal converters, and passive solar approaches * Energy storage – hydrogen and batteries * Power distribution – conventional and superconducting transmission, fluctuating loads, and controls * Renewable energy resource assessment * Transportation – hydrogen, batteries, fuel cells, bioenergy, and vehicles

    A consortium of research groups from ETH Zürich, EPF Lausanne, the Paul Scherrer Institute and the University of Bonn, collaborate in a comprehensive program of basic research on key aspects of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGSs), with a focus on the system to be developed in Basel in December 2006. The work will contribute to understanding and developing an alternative and sustainable energy resource free of CO2-emission. Novel observation techniques and new process-simulation tools will be developed, partly building on data provided as a major ‘in-kind’ contribution by the industrial developers of the Basel Project. The overall aim of the project is to better understand the relevant processes and improve the predictability of EGSs for more extensive use in Switzerland and worldwide.

    1. Research Article (5000 words) Method development: describes new computation methods for the geosciences using standard scientific article format; includes a range of methods such as those for geoscience information infrastructure, collection, representation, management, analysis, visualization, as well as for software development and scientific and social use of geoscience information. This also includes new educational methods as well as comparison of significant computational methods for the geosciences using well-defined benchmarks to reveal new understanding about the nature or use of the methods. In general, papers should include both a novel method or comparison, and a demonstration of relevance to the geosciences. Emphasis is on novelty of method, or comparison with other methods. The highest level of academic quality is expected in terms of citation of appropriate resources, proper referencing of the source of figures, and disclosure of related articles by the same author(s) with related content. 2. Application Article (5000 words) Application development: describes new digital products created for the geosciences using existing computational methods, and discusses their novelty as well as significance and relevance to important geoscience issues: e.g. a novel database, a significant resource assessment, a novel software application or web service. This also includes comparison of products using well-defined benchmarks to reveal a new understanding about the nature or use of the products. Emphasis is on novelty or significance of the application, or comparison of applications or products. Author(s) must disclose financial relationships to product vendors, where applicable, and product endorsements are not accepted. 3. Review Article Scientific review (6000 words): critically describes the state-of-the art of some field in computation for the geosciences. Emphasis is on completeness, depth and novelty of the critical review. Reviews must be timely, of general interest, high quality, written by recognized experts, and will be run only on an occasional basis. Review outlines should be pre-approved by a member of the C&G editorial board, and reviews may be used to frame special C&G issues. 4 Short Note Short Notes (maximum 1500 words) provide a brief description of an application or a timely research development. Emphasis is on novelty or significance of the research or application. An abstract is not required. 5. Book and Software Reviews Book and software reviews (1500 words): describe and evaluate a new book or similar significant publication relevant to computation in the geosciences. Software reviews are also published. 6. Letter to the Editor Letters to the Editor provide a mechanism to debate issues arising from published articles. They are intended to serve workers in academia, industry and government.

    The International Geothermal Association (IGA), founded in 1988, is a scientific, educational and cultural organization established to operate worldwide. It has more than 3000 members in 65 countries. The IGA is a non-political, non-profit, non-governmental organization in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, and Partner of the European Union for the Campaign for Take Off (CTO) the Renewable Energy. IGA is now affiliated to the Renewable Energy Alliance (IREA). OBJECTIVE: to encourage research, development and utilization of geothermal resources worldwide through the compilation, publication and dissemination of scientific and technical data and information, both within the community of geothermal specialists and between geothermal specialists and the general public.

    The International Energy Agency (IEA) Implementing Agreement for a Cooperative Programme on Geothermal Energy Research and Technology, or Geothermal Implementing Agreement (GIA), provides an important framework for wide-ranging international cooperation in geothermal R&D. Its activities presently cover four different research areas: Environmental Impacts of Geothermal Development, Enhanced Geothermal Systems, Advanced Geothermal Drilling Technology and Direct Use of Geothermal Energy. The GIA has begun its third 5-year term of operation, which ends on 31 March 2012. The mission for this term is to promote the sustainable utilization of geothermal energy throughout the world by: improving existing technologies, developing new technologies to render exploitable the vast and widespread global geothermal resources, facilitating the transfer of know-how, providing high quality information and widely communicating geothermal energy's strategic, economic and environmental benefits.
