    DOE Announces up to $44 Million to Advance Enhanced Geothermal Systems

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE) field laboratory today announced up to $44 million for projects to develop and test technology to foster innovation in enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). Geothermal energy has the potential to provide electricity as well as direct heating and cooling to tens of millions of homes nationwide. While a small fraction of the United States’ vast geothermal resource can be harnessed via naturally occurring hot water or steam, the vast majority is inaccessible without the creation of human-made EGS reservoirs. Substantial and sustained investment in technology development is vital to EGS commercialization, which can significantly increase geothermal energy deployment and help the country meet its climate goals.
