Perth, Australia. Reno, Nev. Masdar City, United Arab Emirates. Reykjavik, Iceland. Boise, Idaho. What do these places have in common? They all make great use of geothermal energy. In fact, the City of Trees has the largest direct-use system in the United States, with four heating districts providing warmth for various buildings downtown.

To learn more about this unique natural phenomenon, join John Gardner, of Boise State's CAES Energy Efficiency Research Institute, and Jon Gunnerson, Geothermal Program coordinator for the city of Boise, as they discuss the local geothermal system. With your newfound knowledge you'll be able to impress your friends, win trivia contests and wax poetic about the unique gem that is Boise.
