Cornell University hosted a community forum on May 17, 2018 in downtown Ithaca to provide an update on Earth Source Heat (ESH), our version of an enhanced geothermal energy system, that scientists and facilities experts believe could hold the potential for a research-driven solution to sustainably heating our Ithaca campus without the use of fossil fuels. If proven viable, ESH could lead to a new sustainable, scalable solution to heating challenges throughout New York state and around the globe.

Featured panelists: Lance Collins, the Joseph Silbert Dean of Engineering; Jefferson Tester, the Croll Professor of Sustainable Energy Systems and chief scientist for Earth Source Heat; Rick Burgess, vice president for facilities and campus services; Katie Keranen, assistant professor of earth and atmospheric sciences; Anthony Ingraffea, the Dwight C. Baum Professor Emeritus in Engineering; and Todd Cowen, professor of civil and environmental engineering, and the Kathy Dwyer Marble and Curt Marble Faculty Director for Energy at the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future.
