American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE)

“ACORE is pleased to endorse the Advanced Geothermal Research and Development Act of 2019 (H.R. 5374). In addition to continuing the important work of the DOE’s Geothermal Technologies Office, H.R. 5374 will facilitate productive tech transfer from the oil and gas industry to emerging and non-polluting geothermal uses, catalyze recovery of valuable minerals produced in geothermal development, and authorize advanced field research sites and enhanced geothermal demonstration initiatives.  We look forward to working with Reps. Lucas and Johnson to advance the bipartisan Advanced Geothermal Research and Development Act (H.R. 5374) through the legislative process.”

“Enel voices its support for continued federal funding and support of geothermal research, development and deployment efforts. As Enel and other developers work to expand the footprint of geothermal energy, fundamental investment in scientific capital is essential to overcome the substantial challenges geothermal energy faces. In order to remain competitive with other renewable technologies and serve as a viable resource, the programs proposed within H.R. 5374 are essential.”
