Geothermal Technologies Office Seeks
Proposed Technologies that Lower the Cost of Electricity
Technologies Office (formerly Geothermal Technologies Program) seeks technologies that reduce the levelized cost of
electricity to 6¢/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.
