Why the public sector is key to boosting geothermal in the fight against climate change

September 20, 2022

In some ways, geothermal energy in its many forms represents the biggest possible source of clean energy to help us deal with climate change and transform the way we heat and cool ourselves and power our technological lives.  

But to unlock all that energy, governments worldwide need to lead the way by supporting the primary research needed to make it possible, implementing tax policies that encourage the private sector to scale up and invest long term, streamlining permitting and approval processes, and properly valuing the 24/7 contribution of earth powered renewables.
