US government study indicates 60 GW of geothermal energy capacity under our feet

This week, the U.S. Department of Energy released an analysis that shows how the United States could benefit from the vast potential of geothermal energy. The analysis culminated in a report, GeoVision: Harnessing the Heat Beneath Our Feet, which summarizes findings showing that geothermal electricity generation could increase more than 26-fold from today — reaching 60 gigawatts (GW) of installed capacity by 2050.
