A recent series of publications by the U.S. Department of Energy's Geothermal Technologies Program (GTP) is highlighting the history and accomplishments of major research programs and projects in geothermal energy exploration, drilling, reservoir engineering and energy conversion in the U.S. from 1976-2006.

At the Geothermal Energy Expo 2010 in Sacramento, I was able to pick up a printed version of the publication by the Department of Energy’s Geothermal Technologies Program, that looks into the history on Geothermal Energy Research and Development in the United States.

The reports highlight the history and significant accomplishments of major research programs and projects in geothermal energy exploration, drilling, reservoir engineering and energy conversion in the United States from 1976-2006. The reports are available in electronic format via the links provided below.
