analyses and results


This zipped folder contains files that enable analysis of the spatially variable opportunities to utilize deep direct heat that were needed for the Phase 1 Low Temperature Geothermal Play Fairway Analysis for the Appalachian Basin. This folder includes data pertinent to the methods and results of an analysis of the Surface Levelized Cost of Heat (SLCOH) for US Census Bureau ‘Places’ within the study area. The MATLAB modules used in conjunction with GEOPHIRES, the MATLAB data input file, the GEOPHIRES output data file, and an explanation of the software components have been provided. Results of the SLCOH analysis appear on 4 .png image files as mapped ‘risk’ of heat utilization. For each of the 4 image (.png) files, there is an accompanying georeferenced TIF (.tif) file by the same name.

An industry sorted listing (.xlsx) and 2 maps of the sites of interest have been plotted as a layer onto different iterations of maps combining the three geologic risk factors (Thermal Quality, Natural Reservoir Quality, and Risk of Seismicity). Along with the 26 image (.png) files of the maps in this series, a shapefile (.shp) of the industrial sites is included with 7 associated files.

Finally, supporting files (.pdf) describing the utilization analysis methodology and summarizing the anticipated permitting for a deep district heating system are supplied.
