The focus of this Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy-Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage advancement and development within the domestic geothermal energy industry by creating a consortium to leverage the larger, more mature, and better-funded oil and gas industry. The two industries share significant technological commonalities that make them attractive to work together via a consortium model. Therefore, the aim of this FOA is to select an organization to lead the effort to create a consortium to bring together the geothermal and oil and gas industries. Applicants to this FOA will facilitate establishment of a research consortium, foster collaboration and attract diverse organizations (operators, service companies, universities, national labs, etc.), and run research and development solicitations to achieve the goals of DOE-GTO on leveraging the oil and gas industry to advance geothermal energy.
