“Geothermal is an important domestic clean energy resource. In recent months, there has been a flurry of legislative activity on geothermal energy permitting. Bills have been introduced in both the House and the Senate by Republican, Democrat, and bipartisan sponsors. The attention and efforts from both parties on this topic underscore the potential for enacting policy reforms that would accelerate the deployment of geothermal technologies. Here we discuss the value geothermal could bring to America’s energy mix and highlight some critical considerations for supporting its growth.” (05/08/24)
