Abstract:Hawaii Geothermal Project - Phase II. The Hawaii Geothermal Project was established to focus the resources of the State and the University of Hawa-ii on a coordinated research effort leading to the development of geothermal power on the Big Island of Hawaii. Phase I of the Project was initiated in the summer of 1973 with a $252,000 grant from NSF-RANN, supplemented by $100,000 each from the State and the County of Hawaii. This $452,000 budget was organized into a multidisciplinary research effort in the following program areas: (1) Geophysical - exploratory surveys to define the most favorable areas for geothermal investigations; (2) Engineering - analytical models to assist in interpretation of geophysical results, and studies on energy recovery from hot brine; and (3) Socioeconomic- legal and regulatory aspects of ownership and administration of geothermal resources, and economic planning studies on the impact of geothermal power.
