How California Can Expand US Geothermal Energy Production

How California Can Expand US Geothermal Energy Production

California is privileged to have access to a variety of robust energy resources, particularly geothermal energy. It produces more geothermal power than any other state, and alone accounts for more than 20 percent of total geothermal energy production worldwide. Additionally, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE's) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) demonstrated the importance of adding even more geothermal energy to California’s grid, which could translate to potentially hundreds of millions of dollars saved annually in operations, maintenance, and statewide utility bills. Even with this firm potential, developing new geothermal energy in a competitive California energy market remains a challenge for several reasons — some technical, others market-based. To address these concerns, DOE’s Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) in recent months partnered with the Calif...
