Superhot Rock Geothermal: Technology Needs for Scaling Geothermal Resources Globally

Hotrock Energy Research Organization (HERO) engages in collaborative and transformative research into the science and technologies related to Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) and other advanced geothermal energy technologies. We educate the public on the importance of such research in addressing societal issues of energy supply and climate change.

Benefits of Enhanced Geothermal Systems

Cost Competitive
Electricity

An EGS plant has low,
competitive energy costs
between 5-6₵/kWh

Carbon-Free,
Flexible Renewable Power

Zero emission, 24/7 renewable electric power that can “load follow” to support intermittent renewables like solar and wind.

Job
Generation

Creates jobs and allows for
coal power plant and mine
workers to transition into geothermal plant roles.

 

What We Do

Hotrock Energy Research Organization (HERO) is committed to reducing the environmental footprint of power generation and impact to pristine landscapes by engaging in collaborative and transformative research into the science and technologies related to Enhanced Geothermal Systems and other advanced geothermal energy technologies. We educate the public on the importance of such research in addressing societal issues of energy supply and climate change.
 

HERO was established to further develop EGS and other advanced geothermal energy technologies, in an effort to help meet the world’s growing need for reliable, carbon-free renewable energy. EGS provides carbon-free energy with little landscape disturbance.

HERO engages and collaborates with leading geothermal scientists and engineers from academia, government, and private industry to conduct research at prime locations with high geothermal potential in the United States and in other areas of the world.
