Nevada Governor's Office of Energy Supports Geothermal Innovation and Technology with $1 Million Grant

The Nevada Governor's Office of Energy has announced $1 million in support of research near Fallon that will allow scientists and engineers to develop, test, and accelerate breakthroughs in enhanced geothermal technologies and techniques.

The funding will go to the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) and will allow for geothermal drilling at the Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE) site, a groundbreaking U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research project that builds on Nevada's history of innovative geothermal development.

"Nevada is an international leader in geothermal production and technology but in order to remain the best in the world, we must continue to innovate and invest in research and development," said Governor Brian Sandoval. "These funds demonstrate the state's commitment to renewable energy and our dedication to remaining the top research destination and producer of geothermal technology and techniques."
