Biden Administration To Pursue New Geothermal Energy Effort


Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm announced a goal on Thursday to make geothermal power a “widespread renewable energy option.”

According to a press release from the Department of Energy, policymakers are pursuing the objective of making power from enhanced geothermal systems — which create power by forcing water through hot rock layers in the ground — as much as 90% less expensive by 2035.

“The United States has a vast, geothermal energy resource lying right beneath our feet, and this program will make it economical to bring that power to American households and businesses,” Granholm remarked. “DOE’s Enhanced Geothermal Shot will move geothermal technology from research and development to cost-effective commercial adoption, helping energy communities and workers transition to producing clean energy for the future.”
