Department of Energy Allocates $18 million for US Geothermal Industry

The U.S. Department of Energy has allocated $18 million to support 32 projects focused on research and development in three critical geothermal technology areas: advancing subsurface analysis and engineering techniques for enhanced geothermal systems (EGS), applying a mapping approach called “play fairway analysis” to discover new geothermal resources, and accelerating extraction technologies to unlock domestic supplies of high-value materials like lithium from low- to moderate-temperature geothermal resources. Together, these projects are designed to lower the cost and risk of geothermal development, thereby accelerating technological advancement and economical deployment of geothermal energy.
