2021 U.S. Geothermal Market Report Released
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has published its 2021 U.S. Geothermal Power Production and District Heating Market Report, which highlights areas where the geothermal power sector is primed for technological innovation. The report identifies significant opportunities for expanding power production through cutting-edge enhanced geothermal systems technology development; new power plant operational paradigms such as hybridization and thermal energy storage; and harnessing vast co-production potential from existing oil and gas infrastructure. Increasing the use of geothermal energy for U.S. heating and cooling can significantly contribute to the Biden-Harris Administration's decarbonization goals to cut U.S. emissions in half by 2030 and achieve a carbon pollution-free electric sector by 2035.
