Flannery and Geothermal technology

Today’s Centralian Advocate produced a story about Tim Flannery and his suggestion of a central facility located in the Central Australian desert based on the use of geothermal technology.  The facility would provide energy to other parts of Australia and would serve as a base for the processing of minerals.

There are several exploration companies searching for appropriate locations to use this kind of technology.  One prominent location is in South Australia, but apparently there are large quantities of land that could potentially be used for thispurpose.

Given its existing services and base, the railway line and proximity to the ports near Asia, if a location could be found close to Alice Springs then this location would be ideal. 

As a solar city, the town of Alice could be complimented in several ways if it could serve as an energy hub for the processing of minerals from across Australia and energy supply to regions where it is in demand.
