What is geothermal energy and how can it be used to support the HWS campus?

Lisa Turturro and Paul Tornatore of Haley and Aldrich, an environmental engineering firm, will provide the answers to these questions and more in their talk “Geothermal Energy – Using Lessons from the Past to Plan for the Future,” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 11 at the Finger Lakes Institute.

Haley and Aldrich, based in Boston, addresses environmental, engineering and management issues for clients across the United States and internationally, with 21 offices in this country, including one in Rochester.

Turturro, an environmental consultant; and Tornatore, an engineer and senior consultant, will discuss how geothermal energy can be used to achieve green goals and how it can be applied to overall campus sustainability programs. They will also discuss what their firm has learned about designing geothermal applications to meet expectations.

Geothermal energy is a renewable energy source that uses the hot water and steam from inside the earth to generate electricity or heat buildings.
