Geothermal energy is turning the corner

Mar 26, 2015

Advancing economically competitive renewable energy

Discover the newest advances in geothermal energy—from pinpointing heat beneath the earth’s crust to exciting breakthroughs in geothermal science—in the U.S. Department of Energy’s recent geothermal report.

The report, “2014 Annual Report of the Geothermal Technologies Office,” highlights 35 successful projects in geothermal, hydrothermal, and low-temperature resources—including Oregon’s Newberry Volcano, the Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE), and explorations in Alaska’s hot springs.

Part of the DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, the Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) pursues transformative, high-risk/high-reward science and engineering.

These investments are advancing technologies that will make economical production of energy from natural and engineered geothermal systems possible.
