Enhanced Geothermal Systems Investment by Google

Google invests in Enhanced Geothermal Systems, or EGS

Find green business solutions
Google is inveting more than $10 million in AltaRock Energy and Potter Drilling to help develop "enhanced geothermal systems" technology with the goal of generating one gigawatt of renewable energy capacity.

Enhanced Geothermal Systems, or EGS

EGS produces heat and electricity by harnessing the energy from hot rock deep below the earth's surface, expanding the potential of traditional geothermal energy by orders of magnitude. EGS is a big challenge, but with the potential to power the world many times over, it demands our immediate attention. At Google we've launched an effort to advance EGS through R&D, investment, policy and information.

Google.org has made the following grants and investments to help advance EGS:

  • Potter Drilling: $4 million investment in two tranches focused on developing hard rock drilling breakthrough technologies for EGS.
  • AltaRock Energy, Inc: $6.25 million investment in EGS technologies and project development to support the advancement of enhanced geothermal systems.
  • Southern Methodist University Geothermal Lab: $489,521 grant to improve geothermal resource assessment techniques and update the Geothermal Map of North America.
