Geothermal CRC Proposal

A proposal for a 5-7 year program aimed at achieving a step change improvement in the flows obtained from engineered geothermal reservoirs has been prepared. The proposed research program covers sedimentary and hot rock resources and addresses exploration, reservoir enhancement and subsurface engineering issues as well as policy, regulatory and societal topics as they relate to the adoption of geothermal energy, with a strong emphasis on the reservoir enhancement and subsurface engineering aspects.

A high-level description of the research program can be found in the prospectus.
