AltaRock staff will be available in the Conscious Living Showcase area of the Bend Fall Festival
on October 3 and 4. Come by our booth to chat about the geothermal energy research and development taking place at Newberry Volcano including the new Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE) project. We look forward to seeing you there!
Dr. Adam Schultz, Oregon State University Professor of Geology and Geophysics, recently interviewed with the Corvallis Advocate on the subject of geothermal power. Here’s a link to The Power War: Geothermal vs. Nuclear, published July 15, 2015.
We’ll be at the Bend Summer Festival this Saturday and Sunday. Come by our booth for an update on the Newberry EGS Demonstration project as well as the Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE) project.
The Newberry EGS Demonstration site has been selected by the Department of Energy as a candidate site for the Frontier Observatory in Geothermal Energy. Here are a few links to articles about the announcement:

Department of Energy About FORGE
The Portland Business Journal recently published an exciting article about the Newberry Volcano Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE) project taking place at Newberry- An Active Oregon Volcano could house a new Renewable Energy Laboratory.
Local news station KTVZ News Chanel 21 visited the Newberry EGS Demonstration site and aired a story about the project on March 24. The story was prompted by new rules being implemented by the federal government for regulation of hydraulic fracturing processes used for oil and natural gas production. The Newberry EGS Demonstration already falls under stricter regulations than those being imposed on the oil and gas industries.
AltaRock Energy staff will be giving an update on the Newberry EGS Demonstration project Monday, March 2 at 6 p.m. in the Brooks Room at the Downtown Bend Public Library. Come by to see a presentation and learn where this fascinating green energy project is headed. This is a free, all-ages event. We’d love to see you there!
