Geothermal production in Utah’s Renewable Energy Corridor


Cascade Institute Fellow Rebecca Pearce visited the Utah Renewable Energy Corridor and captured video of drilling at the Fervo production well, featured below.

This will be Fervo’s second commercial enhanced geothermal system (EGS) site, following their Nevada site that will power a Google data-center (operational as of today), and the third to come online globally after the Soultz-sous-ForĂȘts site in France.

The Fervo site is adjacent to the DOE funded Utah FORGE experimentation facility, and is using the technical advancements achieved by FORGE to improve their technical and economic performance.

This is a major step for next-generation geothermal and may herald in a new era of carbon-free renewable energy!
