Accelerating Geothermal Research (Fact Sheet)

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


Geothermal research at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is advancing geothermal technologies to increase renewable power production. Continuous and not dependent on weather, the geothermal resource has the potential to jump to more than 500 gigawatts in electricity production, which is equivalent to roughly half of the current U.S. capacity. Enhanced geothermal systems have a broad broadregional distribution in the United States, allowing the potential for development in many locations across the country.
