The Mexican Center for Innovation in Geothermal Energy (CeMIE-Geo)
Metadata:Show full item record
As part of the Mexican policies to foster the renewable energies in our country, the Secretary of Energy (SENER) and the National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT) have decided to support academic-industry alliances in order to promote and accelerate the development of geothermal, solar, and wind energy. One of these alliances is the Mexican Center for Innovation in Geothermal Energy, CeMIE-Geo (as stands for its name in Spanish). CeMIE-Geo is a group of 23 institutions consisting of academic institutes and private companies leaded by CICESE, an institution funded by CONACYT 40 years ago and aimed for scientific research and higher education. CeMIE-Geo has been funded to conduct scientific research, technological development and to stimulate innovation in all the areas of geothermal industry. We will work in 30 strategic projects focused in different aspects of geothermal industry, from exploration to production, as well as in projects with high or low enthalpy. In addition we must coordinate the preparation of qualified specialists required by the Mexican industry at all levels, from continuous education courses to PhD graduate programs. We are also setting up a highly specialized laboratory system based in the infrastructure existent in the Mexican universities and research institutes, which will be substantially upgraded and integrated in a national system to support research and development as well as to offer world class analytical capabilities to geothermal industry in Mexico and abroad. In this paper we show the projects and programs of CeMIE-Geo and give a view of our general goals and specific objectives.
