EERE Success Story—Geothermal Technology Breakthrough in Alaska: Harvesting Heat below Boiling Temperatures

The Energy Department is supporting geothermal exploration at lower temperatures, thanks to a technology breakthrough that allows geothermal energy to be produced at temperatures below the boiling point (212 degrees Fahrenheit).This innovation increases the development potential of geothermal sites worldwide. The exciting news comes from Energy Department-funded research and development at Chena Hot Springs, a promising hot spot in Alaska for onsite geothermal energy production among many in the state’s Native American lands.

Alaska Energy in Action: Akiak Reaps Benefits of PCE Technical Assistance

The State of Alaska’s Power Cost Equalization (PCE) Program is intended to “equalize” the cost of power for rural Alaskans through rate balancing that takes into account both the amount of funding spent on large energy infrastructure projects that benefit the urban “Railbelt” and Juneau electric utility customers and the procurement costs incurred by the 184 isolated diesel microgrid utilities scattered across rural Alaska.
