The Geothermal Energy Association announced that 188 geothermal projects in 15 states could produce as much as 7,875 megawatts. The number of projects in 2009 was up 26%. They also said that federal stimulus funding "will result in over $600 million of research into new technology at 135 projects in 25 states over the next two years."
A story about this in the NY Times also says the "Treasury Department has awarded seven geothermal developers more than $154 million in Section 1603 tax credits."
AZGS is playing a lead role in development and deployment of the DOE-funded National Geothermal Data System (NGDS - www.geothermaldata.org) to make technical information readily available online to enhance geothermal exploration and development.
