Geothermal technologies today – like all high-potential technologies – are driven by research and development platforms that focus not only on what’s required now, but where the needs are in the future.

Geothermal energy continues to show tremendous potential, with worldwide investment reaching new levels.  

That growth is highlighted in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) 2017 Annual Report, which recognizes advances in transformative, high-risk/high-reward science and engineering from GTO’s portfolio.

The 2017 issue highlights project successes and continued efforts in all of the office’s program areas – enhanced geothermal systems (EGS), hydrothermal, low temperature and coproduced resources and systems analysis – which are flanked by useful tools, resources and links to more information. Highlights include FORGE and EGS Collab advancements, projects reducing geothermal costs and risks, advancements in technology research and development and the launch of GTO’s deep direct-use efforts.
