Teamwork Makes the "Therm" Work! Scaling District Geothermal Through Coalitions

What does a pipe fitter have to do with a nonprofit? What does a turnkey solution provider have to do with a utility? The answer is EVERYTHING. With the roll out of new IRA renewable tax credits, state incentives and pilot opportunities, there is so much potential to scale networked geothermal opportunities. Learn how to effectively plan for integrative design by applying a variety of coalition strategies to the next pilot demonstrations for the best chances of successful adoption of district geothermal technology.
