Abstract

Work conducted at the Bureau of Mineral Resources (now Geoscience Australia) in the early 1990s was instrumental in bringing hot rocks geothermal research and development to Australia. Following the announcement of the Australian Government's Energy Initiative in August 2006, a new geothermal project has been started at Geoscience Australia. This paper, presented at 3rd Hot Rock Energy Conference in Adelaide, August 2007, outlines the scope of the Onshore Energy Security Program and the development, implementation and progress to date of the Geothermal Energy Project.
