Geothermal Visual: Industry Has Potential for Significant Increased Capacity in the US

Geothermal Visual: Industry Has Potential for Significant Increased Capacity in the US

“Geothermal resources have the potential to play a much more significant role in our Nation’s energy mix,” USGS Fact Sheet 2008-3082 . The plethora of geothermal sites in Nevada, California, Alaska, Oregon, and Idaho is an immediate takeaway in our geothermal Graph of the Week. The data is derived from a 2008 U.S. Geological Survey study that assessed the electric power generation potential of conventional geothermal resources (90°C (194°F) and greater) and found potential for a much greater role for geothermal in the United States. With an average estimate of 5,404 MW, California has the highest identified resource, nearly double the state’s current installed capacity of around 2,700 MW. In total, USGS found between 3,675 MW (95 percent likelihood) and 16,457 MW (5 percent) of identified moderate- to high-temperature geothermal resources. The number rose to between 7,917 ...
