The Geothermal Technologies Office invested $4 million in ten projects to advance and adapt play fairway analysis. Selected awards span the country, from the Aleutian arc in Alaska to the Appalachian basin on the East Coast. The resulting regional, basin-scale maps will serve to quantify and reduce uncertainty for geothermal energy exploration. By improving success rates for exploration drilling, play fairway analysis could significantly lower the costs of geothermal energy while opening up new areas to development
