The Geothermal Technologies Office announced selections for up to $10 million for Integrated EGS R&D to twelve collaborative enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) research and development projects that will use novel techniques to increase the precision and accuracy of measuring critical underground reservoir properties over time. Project teams will focus on the integration of a variety of cutting-edge, complementary technologies and approaches in order to optimize the development and sustainability of EGS reservoirs. These awards, up to three years in length, will initially focus on laboratory feasibility studies – and later yield integrated characterization methods and prototypes ready to be validated in the field.
