Geothermal Energy Overcoming Technology Hurdles and Enabling Recovery of the MinerAl Lithium (GEOTHERMAL)

January 9, 2020

Due Feb 5th, 2020

The purpose of this solicitation is to fund applied research and development, and technology demonstration and deployment projects that meet the following objectives:  


Develop and demonstrate technologies, tools, and strategies to improve the productivity and flexibility of existing geothermal facilities;


Develop and demonstrate technologies to recover lithium from geothermal brine;


Funded projects will help improve production and flexibility of existing geothermal facilities and demonstrate the economic capture of lithium from geothermal brines. The projects will increase the overall economic value of existing or future geothermal projects through integration of emerging technologies and added value from lithium recovery operations from geothermal brine, which in return will ensure higher penetration of non-intermittent renewable energy in California and provide a range of benefits, including grid stability, reliability, and resiliency. Projects must fall within one of the following project groups:  


 Group 1: Improving Productivity and Flexibility of Existing Geothermal Facilities;  

 Group 2: Improving Process and Technology for Lithium Recovery;

 Group 3: Deployment and Demonstration of Lithium Recovery from Geothermal Brines.
