Geovision Study - Increasing Geothermal Electricity Generation 26-Fold by 2050

https://www.energy.gov/eere/geothermal/geovision
brief description
The GeoVision report analyzes multiple geothermal deployment scenarios.
key insights
  • Optimized permitting could cut development timelines in half, leading to a doubling of geothermal development (13 GWe by 2050) versus business-as-usual.
  • Over the next 30 years, direct-use could increase from a current total of 21 geothermal district heating installations to as many as 17,500 nationwide. Geothermal heat pumps could increase to 28 million.
  • Geothermal power deployment could reach 60 GWe by 2050 – more than 8 percent of national generation – with aggressive technology improvements.
