DOE Supporting Enhanced Geothermal Systems and Advance Thermal Energy Storage – LOI Due 03/01/24. Application Due 04/01/24. $31 Million Available

Opportunity Title:

$31 Million Available to Improve Enhanced Geothermal Systems and Advance Thermal Energy Storage



Department of Energy (DOE), Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO)


Opportunity Number:




The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a funding opportunity of up to $31 million for projects supporting enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) wellbore tools as well as the use of low-temperature geothermal heat for industrial processes.

The combined Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks projects in two topic areas:

  • Topic Area 1: Funding of up to $23.1 million will support projects to address downhole cement and casing evaluation tools for use in high-temperature and hostile geothermal wellbores.

  • Topic Area 2: Funding of up to $7.9 million will support a demonstration project for low-temperature reservoir thermal energy storage technology with applications to industrial processes.

Projects under Topic Area 1 will reduce costs and technical challenges associated with wellbore construction for EGS, which will expand opportunities to tap firm, flexible, domestic geothermal energy nationwide and support DOE’s Enhanced Geothermal Shot.

Projects under Topic Area 2 can help reduce emissions from energy-intensive industrial heating processes and spur reservoir thermal energy storage technology towards being a long-term, reliable decarbonization technology for U.S. industry and manufacturing. Projects under this topic also support DOE’s Industrial Heat Shot.
