EGS projects span research, development, and demonstration. Unlike traditional hydrothermal systems, EGS capture heat from areas that traditional geothermal energy cannot—where fluid and/or permeability are lacking. The EGS portfolio is addressing significant barriers to wide adoption of this next generation technology.
