DOE is seeking to partner with geothermal stakeholders to alleviate some of the risks of EGS development through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). This integrated FOA will allow DOE to develop new sensors, down-hole tools, and mapping capabilities in order to operate at greater depths and higher reservoir temperatures, and to partner with geothermal stakeholders to increase the knowledge and understanding necessary for EGS to advance to a state of commercial readiness.
Initial estimated total funding for this award is listed at $10,500,000 in fiscal year (FY) 2008, with additional anticipated funds of $79,000,000 in FY09 and FY10, subject to change and Congressional appropriations.
Brief descriptions of both topic areas are as follows:
- Topic 1: Component Areas R&D
- Topic 2: System Demonstrations
Funding amounts and schedules are subject to change.
