DOE awards $43m for geothermal R&D

The US Department of Energy has awarded up to $43.1 million to 21 groups for improving geothermal energy systems.

The awards, given to groups of universities, companies and government entities, are part of the $90 million the department has allocated for geothermal research and development over the next four years (see DOE lines up $90m for geothermal research).

Seventeen of the awards are for research and development covering reservoir creation, management and use at temperatures up to 300 Celsius and depths to 10,000 meters. The other four awards are for demonstrating ways to improve existing geothermal installations.
