Report on preliminary assessment of the potential applications of geothermal energy (Western Canadian Sedimentary Basins), phase one, and two: M74-3/81-7E-PDF
"Three specific applications of geothermal energy from sedimentary basins were chosen from a wide variety of potential applications. These were 1) potash mine air heating in the Saskatoon area; 2) Commercial complex space heating in the Calgary area; and 3) district heating in the Grande Prairie area. The costs of the available energy over a 30 year life are in the range $4.78 - $4.95 per GJ, but consideration of the utilisation factor increases this cost to $12.47 - $24.12 per GJ. These figures are in 1981 dollars, and make no allowance for inflation interest or capital or other variable economic factors"--Abstract.
