The likely impacts of two proposed federal incentives for accelerating the development of geothermal resources for electric power production are evaluated. The incentives are: an additional 20% investment tax credit applicable to both well field capital and power plant capital; and a federal...
The study showed that the Geothermal Loan Guaranty Program has had only a negligible effect on geothermal development and the response to the program was far less than expected. The streamlining of environmental regulations and leasing policies, and the granting of intangible drilling cost...
As part of a mission-oriented program for accelerating the commercialization of geothermal energy, research is sponsored which concerns the quantitative analysis of investment decisions by industries involved in the development of geothermal resources. The results of a quick-response study...
This is the users guide for the Geothermal Loan Guaranty Cash Flow Model (GCFM). GCFM is a Fortran code which designs and costs geothermal fields and electric power plants. It contains a financial analysis module which performs life cycle costing analysis taking into account various types of...
In this paper, the authors discuss the experiences in creating an object-oriented economic model of the U.S. energy and agriculture markets. After a discussion of some central concepts, they provide an overview of the model, focusing on the methodology of designing an object-oriented class...
