To optimize and validate EGS, DOE plans to fund the development of a subsurface laboratory where new technologies and techniques can be tested.
DOE investments have yielded a novel low-temperature geothermal technology at 20% less cost than conventional binary systems. Industry partner Johnson Controls has developed and installed these units to aid in the university's goal of carbon-neutral campuses.
A new study commissioned by the Energy Department highlights the vast potential for enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) to provide clean, reliable, and sustainable energy to millions of American homes and businesses.Energy Department Invests $10 Million to Develop State-of-the-Art Methodologies to Enable Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS)
The Energy Department announced $10 million toward improving subsurface characterization for EGS technologies.
