A few weeks after doling out $70 million for much the same purpose, the Department of Energy (DOE), through its Geothermal Technologies Program, has announced another $11.3 million in grants will go to eight projects in five states in support of the research and development of advanced geothermal technologies. The awards will fund projects to be administered by companies in Texas, Connecticut and California (2), the Livermore and Berkeley National Labs in California and universities in Louisiana and Utah.
