The BIL section 41007 (a) authorizes the DOE Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) to carry out activities under section 615(d) (Enhanced Geothermal Systems Demonstrations) of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, as amended by the Energy Act of 2020 (42 U.S.C. 17194(d) (EISA 2007) including $84,000,000 for the period of fiscal years 2022 through 2025. EISA 2007 authorizes GTO to support Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) pilot projects that collectively demonstrate EGS in different geologic settings, using a variety of development techniques and well orientations, at sites where subsurface characterization or geothermal energy integration analysis has been conducted. These pilot demonstration projects will enable investments that maintain progress towards GTO’s aggressive GeoVision4 and Enhanced Geothermal Systems Energy Earthshot goals, and will support the Biden Administration’s goal to achieve a carbon-free electric grid by 2035 and a net zero emissions economy by 2050.
