Public Workshops Set for Training on Geothermal Energy on Federal Land

Regional Sessions Will Address Benefits of Recently Completed Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement to Western States

WASHINGTON, D.C.--The public and members of the geothermal industry are encouraged to join the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service at seven regional training sessions intended to encourage environmentally sound development of geothermal energy across the Western U.S. The seven sessions listed below begin in early April in Denver and end in Salt Lake City in June.

The training will provide an understanding of the process involved in leasing geothermal resources on Federal lands and will describe the benefits of the Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for geothermal energy (www.blm.gov/geothermal_eis) published in October 2008. Each training session will be three hours in length. The project management staff from the PEIS team will be present at all meetings. The sessions are free of charge and do not require registration.
