Geothermal energy projects in the US receive $46m boost

Enhanced geothermal systems are different from conventional geothermal resources that occur naturally in the US and are geographically limited due to the need for underground heat and fluids

$31m boost for geothermal energy research

The US Department of Energy (DOE) is providing up to $31 million (£18.2m) for a field laboratory dedicated to “cutting-edge” geothermal energy research. The funding will be used for the initial phases of the Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE), which will look into enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). EGS are engineered reservoirs which […]
