"One option for transitioning away from our current hydrocarbon-based energy system to non-carbon sources is geothermal energy - from both conventional hydrothermal resources and enhanced geothermal systems," said Zoback, a senior fellow at the Precourt Institute for Energy at Stanford.
Zoback also will also discuss challenges facing the emerging shale gas industry. "The shale gas revolution that has been underway in North America for the past few years has been of unprecedented scale and importance," he said.
Geology plays a surprising role in the development of renewable energy resources.
