The 2023 Annual EGI Technical Conference will be Sept. 18-21, 2023

The Energy & Geoscience Institute (EGI) at the University of Utah has been serving the energy industry for over 50 years. On September 18, 2023, we will kick off our Annual EGI Technical Conference with corporate associates and special guests which will include a field course. We will showcase our research in energy fluids and minerals, carbon management, and geothermal energy as we continue to move forward with our vision to be one of the leaders in the energy transition.

The conference will consist of an evening ice breaker reception on Monday the 18th at the University Park Marriott followed by technical sessions on Geothermal and CCUS on Tuesday and technical sessions on energy fluids, and minerals and energy efficiency on Wednesday.

The geothermal session on day one is a can’t miss. Some of you may have read in numerous articles that Utah FORGE (Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy) has made significant progress in the geothermal field by pumping water through deep granite. The Utah FORGE team recently connected two deep wells that could one day generate a continuous flow of hot water for electricity production and a variety of direct uses. During this technical session of the conference, attendees will meet the scientists working on Utah FORGE and the advances the DOE funded geothermal laboratory has made.

The field trip on the 21st will consist of a tour of the Great Salt Lake. From prehistoric to present, archaeology, geology, and geomorphology of the Great Salt Lake region will be discussed in detail. Stops include Knolls Sand dunes, lunch at the Historic Wendover Airfield, Danger cave, Juke Box Trench, and Bonneville Salt Flats.

Throughout the conference week there will be a variety of awards presented along with speakers from the energy industry and multiple panels.

Seats are limited. To attend the 2023 Annual Technical Conference please register here.
