Geothermal Energy at the U.S. Department of Energy. Geothermal Technologies Office. GTO works to reduce costs and risks associated with geothermal development by supporting innovative technologies that address key exploration and operational challenges. Program Areas. Enhanced Geothermal Systems. Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) hold the. DOE's report finds that with improvements to technology and regulations, geothermal capacity could make up % of total U.S. installed capacity in , and produce % of the country's. Geothermal energy is a significant source of renewable electric power in the western United States and, with advances in exploration and development technologies, a potential source of a large fraction of baseload electric power for the entire country. The Geothermal Technologies Office researches, develops, and validates innovative and cost-competitive technologies and tools to locate, access, and develop geothermal resources in the United States. We work in partnership with industry, academia, and DOE's national laboratories on research and development activities focused on these areas.
The DOE’s Geothermal Technologies Office is working toward a goal of achieving widespread production of low-temperature geothermal power by These exciting new developments in geothermal will be supported by unprecedented levels of federal R&D funding. Program in geothermal well technology directed toward achieving DOE/DGE power-on-line goals. A broadly based development program directed at correcting these deficiencies is defined. Geothermal Technologies Program (GTP), Department of Energy (DOE)st Century Geothermal Energy: A History of Geothermal Energy Research and Development in the United States-Volume 2-Drilling [M]. Progressive Management, Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) hold the potential to power tens of millions of American homes and businesses. GTO actively supports R&D initiatives that guide enhanced geothermal toward a commercially viable platform by , including technology validation, .
Sandia National Laboratories is a multi-program laboratory managed and operated by Sandia Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation, for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration under contract DE-ACAL Approved for public release; further dissemination unlimited. Sadiq J. Zarrouk, Katie McLean, in Geothermal Well Test Analysis, Scope of this book. Geothermal wells are an expensive and high-risk component of any geothermal development. Wells are the main window into the underground reservoir, via well testing which provides insight into the reservoir conditions and enables the assessment of production well output or reinjection well capacity. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) has designed and tested a comprehensive, federated information system that will make geothermal data widely available. This new National Geothermal Data System (NGDS) will provide access to all types of geothermal data to enable geothermal analysis and widespread public use, thereby reducing the risk of geothermal . Traditionally, geothermal electric plants have been built on the edges of tectonic plates where high temperature geothermal resources are available near the surface. Recent improvements in drilling and extraction technology have enabled the creation of geothermal power plants in areas where the thermal resources lie deep under the surface.
