Short CV Brian Carey (BE, ME) has over 25 years involvement in geothermal energy developments at a commercial and project level. Prior to joining GNS Science as the Geothermal Manager in 2007, he was the geothermal resource manager at Contact Energy’s Wairakei Power Station. This work has included an environmental planning focus over the last 20 years, most recently working on the resource consenting for Wairakei Power Station, and coordinating the technical input, science and engineering for field development programmes. He has a strong, established network of geothermal contacts both in New Zealand and overseas, supported by membership of a number of professional organisations, including IPENZ and the NZ Geothermal Association. Brian’s professional interests include geothermal resource utilisation specialising in reservoir utilisation, steamfield engineering, steamfield energy management, electric power generation and environmental planning.
