DOE Sees New York Leading on Geothermal Installations – In 2019 The US Department of Energy released its Geo Vision report, looking at the potential of geothermal energy in its many forms. The report includes a look at geothermal heat pumps and projects a growth from a current 2 million homes employing geothermal heating and cooling in the US to a projected 28 million by 2050, serving close to 25% of the entire U.S. heating and cooling market. It also cites the potential for 17,500 geothermal district heating installations, and as the chart below shows, DOE is projecting the highest penetration of geothermal heat pump systems in New York State. On February 17th the Geothermal Technology Office (GTO) within DOE released its 2022-26 Multi-Year Program Plan (MYPP), a high-level strategy and five-year roadmap to “Operationalize Geothermal Energy’s Key Role in Reaching U.S. Clean Energy Goals.”
