GeoVision: Harnessing the Heat Beneath Our Feet - Analysis Inputs and Results US Low-Temperature EGS Resource Potential Estimate

This submission includes input and results data from analysis done as part of the Geothermal Technology Office's Geothermal Vision Study (GeoVision). The submission includes data for both analysis of the electricity sector and the heating and cooling sector. For the electricity sector, the submission includes geothermal resource potential and development cost inputs for the ReEDS model and ReEDS model results of projected installed capacity and generation of geothermal and other technologies under the GeoVision scenarios. It also includes results from environmental and social impacts analysis. For the cooling sector, the submission includes geothermal resource potential and development cost inputs for the dGeo model and dGeo model results of economic, market, and deployment potential. Shapefile of shallow, low-temperature EGS resources for the United States, and accompanying paper (submitted to GDR 2016) describing the methodology and analysis. These data are part of a very rough estimate created for use in the U.S. Department of Energy Geothermal Technology Office's Vision Study. Describes the shallow EGS resources used to determine direct use (DU) potential via the dGeo model. They are not a robust estimate of low-temperature EGS resources in the U.S, and should be used accordingly.
