Today’s episode takes us to the floor of the Groundwater Week 2022 event Dec. 6-8, 2022, in Las Vegas. Anchor Brock Yordy speaks with Art Steelman of Matrix Drilling Products about sharing industry knowledge, then talks to longtime geothermal advocate Jack DiEnna of the Geothermal National & International Initiative. It’s episode 42.

“I don’t think you guys know how important it is for you to be here,” DiEnna says, speaking directly to the drillers attending this year’s Groundwater Week, which brought together the National Ground Water Association, the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association and the Irrigation Association. “Without you as our allies and our partners in crime, we’re air-source heat pumps.”

“This tech is the only tech that going to meet any goals that they’re mentioning about climate change or anything else,” DiEnna adds.
