  • Screening tool developed to assess seismic risks from geothermal energy projects

    A new screening tool to assess the potential seismic risks (earthquake activity) from deep geothermal energy projects has been outlined in a recent study. The tool provides categories of seismicity risk for projects, which are dependent on factors including geological aspects, as well as social concern and location in relation to urban areas. The development of a range of low-carbon technologies ...

  • Department of energy announces $20 million to boost development of innovative geothermal technologies

    U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu today announced $20 million to research, develop and demonstrate cutting-edge geothermal technologies that could reduce U.S. demand for fossil fuels, significantly cut carbon pollution, and create new jobs in geothermal manufacturing and operations.  Geothermal energy uses the earth's heat to generate consistent, low-cost renewable energy resources with a ...
