GTO Director Doug Hollett took the stage this week at the Geothermal Resources Council industry meeting in Portland, Oregon to address barriers to geothermal development and how the office is working with industry, national labs, and academia to face down technical and market challenges. In addition, he outlined the Energy Department's geothermal funding opportunities in FY14: Integrated EGS R&D, Play Fairway Analysis, and the Low-Temperature Mineral Recovery Program.
Doug also covered a dominant thrust of the Office's technical portfolio for the coming years - the Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE).
