Just in time for the big upcoming meeting... I hope you have the chance to blow HTM's horn...and it's expertise in the new upcoming EGS technology...
Washington, D.C. (January 17, 2013) Registration is now open for the Geothermal Energy Association's State of the Geothermal Energy Industry Briefing (#GEABriefing2013), to be held on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The event will convene geothermal industry leaders, congressional staffers and government agencies for the release of the 2013 Annual GEA Industry Update, as well as a discussion by key corporate and policy insiders about what is required to move the industry forward.
“After a sustained period of growth in the geothermal industry, all eyes are on recent developments to see if this progress will continue. The GEA State of the Geothermal Energy Industry Briefing will bring geothermal and policy leaders together for a comprehensive look at our industry’s U.S. growth over the past year,” said GEA Executive Director Karl Gawell. “It is an exciting time to be part of the U.S. geothermal industry, as policies at the national and state levels stand to foster significant growth. The GEA Industry Briefing will further delineate the steps needed to ensure continued expansion.”
...... Additionally, enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) technology - the process of extracting heat from engineered reservoirs through fluid injection and rock stimulation - represents the opportunity to tap into staggering geothermal potential in other states as well.
Buy Chevron instead. They're well positioned to receive gub subs for gt research and production. CVX used to own some of HTM's assets. CVX can easily buy them back, but Chevron already produces mad amounts of gt energy.
GT business is way too cap intensive for a 50 million dollar company.
But more power to you, Mr. Glaspey. I wish you well.
If you go to the event website you can see that "Doug Glaspey, President & COO, US Geothermal, confirmed", will be in a panel discussion with Ormat, ElectraTherm, and Terra-Gen Power, in a session called "Key Opportunities and Obstacles: An Industry CEO Perspective". So there will be some representation there as well. Event sponsored by Chevron.
And what pray tell does his appointment have to do with any of the MANY fundamental negatives currently impacting HTM?
Also, where pray tell is all the insider buying, the 'folks' who purportedly are in the know about what many uber-optimistic posters believe are meaningful and sure-to-move-the stock-price-appreciably-north developments at HTM?
According to this board, here is the total extent on insider activity in 2012.
I'm sure the plethora of 'true believers' will find a silver lining in that insider activity data!
