Well, the scale is tipping back towards good news, at least for now. The DOE has announced $20 million in funding to boost research, development and demonstration of innovative geothermal technologies in the U.S.. These include low-temperature geothermal fluids (up to 300° F), geothermal fluids recovered from oil and gas wells and highly pressurized geothermal fluids.
