Geothermal Technologies Office Seeks Proposed Technologies that Lower the Cost of Electricity

Geothermal Technologies Office (formerly Geothermal Technologies Program) seeks technologies that reduce the levelized cost of electricity to 6ยข/kWh by 2020 for new hydrothermal development and by 2030 for Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS). Applicants should consider using Geothermal Electricity Technology Evaluation Model (GETEM) to show a clear and detailed pathway to cost reduction using their proposed technology. Methods to identify, access, create, and sustain hydrothermal and EGS reservoirs are of interest. Prime mover technologies that generate electricity from geothermal heat and fluid resources will NOT be considered. For more information, see the full solicitation.
