For its geothermal research activities, the U.S. DOE's Geothermal Technologies Office is seeking merit reviewers in the U.S. and internationally.

Looking to Get Involved in Geothermal Research? The U.S. Department of Energy’s Geothermal Technologies Office is Seeking Merit Reviewers.

Over the past several years, the Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) has funded a number of successful programs and initiatives. The office’s annual appropriations budget – and its quantity of research – continues to grow. That means more opportunities for geothermal stakeholders to get involved as merit reviewers.

Qualified reviewers cover a wide gamut, representing academic, industrial, and government sectors. Ideal candidates include engineers, scientists, and management professionals (particularly those with financial or policy backgrounds) from the geothermal, oil and gas, and mining industries. Specific areas of expertise include:

  • Geosciences, geophysics, and geochemistry
  • Geomechanics and fracture mechanics
  • Subsurface exploration, resource management, and production
  • Direct-use heating and cooling systems
  • Rare earth and critical materials
  • Data analysis, computational modeling, and machine learning

Interested? If you’d like to get involved, please submit a brief introduction that includes your area(s) of expertise and current resume to As a final note, you are encouraged to share this message with colleagues you think might be good candidates.
