How next-gen geothermal could boost the future of energy

How next-gen geothermal could boost the future of energy

Harnessing naturally occurring heat trapped between layers of rock below the earth's surface, geothermal power plants are capable of supplying clean, renewable electricity around the clock. This valuable trait should position geothermal power as an important asset within emerging sustainable energy systems that rely heavily on intermittent renewables such as wind and solar. But despite more than 50 years of commercial activity, geothermal power's path has been more rocky than disruptive.

In the United States, which leads the world in geothermal power with an installed operating generating capa...
