USA: DOE to Fund International Geothermal Research and Development Consortium

Energy Department Announces $2 Million to Advance Collaborative Geothermal Research through New International Partnership (News Release)

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced it will contribute up to $2 million in available funding through a joint Call for Proposals to advance geothermal research and development through a new partnership with more than a dozen European countries.

As part of its membership with GEOTHERMICA – a transnational consortium that combines financial resources and research expertise to demonstrate and validate novel concepts in geothermal energy use – the U.S. geothermal community will be able to collaborate directly with European partners on shared research projects that leverage valuable data, field site access, and extensive expertise in geothermal research and development. European researchers will likewise benefit from shared learning with American counterparts.
