    The Canadian Press via The Vancouver Sun

The pilot project is designed to show that it's possible to generate geothermal electricity from the boiling water that comes out of the wells. Will Gosnold, a researcher at the University of North Dakota who is leading the project, said that during the shale boom in recent years no one was interested in fiddling with extra equipment, but with oil prices low, companies are looking at any way to save money.
