Initiative Will Provide Up to $13 Million To Accelerate Deployment of Geothermal District Heating and Cooling Systems to Diverse Range of Communities Across U.S.
More geothermal heating and cooling could be coming to a community near you, thanks to a new initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO).
This initiative will provide up to $13 million across two phases to support community-led geothermal solutions. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has been named subrecipient on four of the 11 communities selected for community-scale geothermal heating and cooling design and deployment projects.
NREL will assist communities in Colorado (Carbondale), Vermont (Middlebury), and Alaska (Seward and a remote community near Nome) to install district or networked geothermal technologies.
