Participant Bio: Michael Moore

July 28, 2012

Michael Moore, AltaRock EnergyMichael Moore is a mechanical engineer and serves as Project Manager for the Newberry EGS Demonstration. He joined the AltaRock team this year.

Role in the Demonstration

Essentially, Michael keeps everything on track. He facilitates project planning and progress, working with our team and our collaborators, as well as with organizations such as the BLM, the DOE, the Forest Service, local government permitting agencies, and community groups.

This is no small task, as so many people and organizations have a vested interest in the demonstration’s success, and the process of moving from one phase to the next has many steps. But Michael finds the work extremely satisfying:

“It is rewarding to work in an area of scenic beauty, great recreation, and people interested in the project’s success – especially to work on this exciting and hopefully game-changing technology.

Other countries understand and support the inclusion of emerging technologies, such as EGS, into the larger mix of more conventional projects and technologies that are decades old.

When commercialized, EGS will be able to open a new path to project development that moves away from traditional areas of geographical development (CA and NV). It can also help sustain and extend the useful life of existing commercial projects.”

Outside of the Demonstration

Before joining AltaRock, Michael’s experience included 32 years with 9 companies and projects in 4 countries and 4 western states. He enjoys sports of all kinds, including skiing, cycling, swimming, golf, and tennis.
