DE-FOA-0000890: Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE)

The objective of this announcement is to establish a dedicated Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) field laboratory called the Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE). FORGE is envisioned as a dedicated site where new technologies and techniques can be tested, with a central focus on EGS validation, optimization and replicability at scale. FORGE is a critical step towards creating a commercial pathway to EGS within an aggressive timeframe; FORGE will promote high-risk-reward science and engineering focused on addressing EGS barriers and a robust instrumentation and data collection effort that will allow the geothermal and other subsurface sectors to gain a fundamental understanding of the key mechanisms controlling thermo-mechanical-chemical-hydrologic processes at depth.
