Washington, DC [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The Geothermal Energy Association is urging the public to write to the Department of Energy (DOE) to express concern about its exclusion of the geothermal industry from the Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan details DOE strategies and goals for the coming years and will influence funding and program development at the agency. The DOE has opened up the Strategic Plan for public comment. The Geothermal Energy Association is asking people to respond quickly because the comment period officially ends on September 7th. E-mail the DOE at StrategicPlan@hq.doe.gov.
