24 Clean energy challenge INL is helping the energy industry and its regulators quickly safely and securely expand energy supply improve efficiency and address environmental concerns. TechnologyADVANCING ENERGY SECURITY Expanding energy supply Researchers from INL and the Center for Advanced Energy Studies CAES formed a geothermal energy research team to explore turning the hot water flowing beneath Idaho into an economical source of power. In 2011 the team hosted a geothermal energy workshop that drew more than 70 people from industry academia government agencies and conservation groups. They worked to identify geothermal expertise at the CAES partner institutions understand industry needs identify research funding opportunities and discuss the possibility of a shared geothermal curriculum among the university partners. INL also conducted a comprehensive assessment of energy resources concentrated along the Rocky Mountains and northern plains in Canada and the U.S. known as the Western Energy Corridor. INL provided the Western Energy Corridor report to governors and premiers within the region to provide a stimulus for a binational regional dialogue about resource development.
