Sebastian Homuth, an MS candidate at the School for Renewable Energy Science (RES) in Akureyri, north Iceland, received the Young Scientist Prize at the opening of the German Geothermal Society congress in Karlsruhe, Germany on November 11.
The prize was awarded for Homuth’s thesis entitled “In-situ-Measurements for the Determination of Geothermal Underground Parameters,” an RES press release revealed this week.
The German Geothermal Congress is one of the most respected and significant annual assemblies in Europe focusing on geothermal business and research.
This year more than 800 international experts and researchers from the geothermal industry, universities and research institutions participated in the congress and the accompanying GEOEnergia exhibition.
The exhibition features companies from all sectors of the geothermal industry, including drilling companies, power plant companies, consultants and manufacturers, as a market place for contacts and for the presentation of know-how, experience and products.
An online publication of Homuth’s article can be found in German here.
Three scholarships are available for aspiring RES students for the upcoming semester. Visit res.is for further information.
