Prof. Dell and William Folley Awarded the GRC's Best Presentation Award

October 26, 2015

The selections were made in each of the GRC Technical Sessions held in late September at the 39th GRC Annual Meeting in Reno, Nevada, USA, the world's largest geothermal energy event. The judging criteria included the technical content, the quality of the visual aids and the presenter's ability to communicate the subject matter. Over 135 presentations were made totaling over 45 hours over three days. More than 1,200 attendees came to the GRC Annual Meeting and GEA Expo from around the world.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
