Under what conditions does a scaled geothermal power generation system (SGPGS) become preferred to a traditional diesel generator to provide electricity at Forward Operating Bases (FOB)? a. How does the proposed system support the current drive in the Department of the Navy toward clean and renewable energy sources? b. How does the proposed system fit into an “all of the above” energy generation strategy? c. What are the requirements for a scaled geothermal power generation system (SGPGS)? d. What stakeholder needs are met by a system developed from these requirements? e. What are the thresholds of environmental parameters, cost concerns, and hostility levels where a SGPGS becomes a viable alternative to traditional diesel generators?
