Appointments to technical advisory board

Tuesday, 23 October, 2007

Australian geothermal energy company KUTh Energy Limited has announced the first appointment to its Technical Advisory Board.  

Prof Jefferson Tester is an authority on engineered or enhanced geothermal systems and is the HP Meissner Professor of Chemical Engineering Laboratory for Energy and the Environment at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  

Tester’s research spans almost every discipline concerned with the production of electricity from geothermal resources. Earlier this year, he was the senior author of the landmark study ‘The Future of Geothermal Energy — Impact of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) on the United States in the 21st Century’, a report prepared by an MIT-led interdisciplinary panel for the US Department of Energy.   

“The Board will be chaired by KUTh’s principal consultant Dr Roger Lewis and will consist of up to five members, each distinguished experts in fields pertinent to the exploration for and development of geothermal power,” KUTh Energy chairman Dr John Bishop said.  

The Advisory Board members act in an honorary capacity and it is intended to convene a few times each year to discuss issues pertinent to KUTh and the geothermal industry in Australia. Advisory Board members will also be called upon on an ad hoc basis to advise on specific issues as they occur.
