U.S. Department of Energy launches the National Geothermal Data System (NGDS)
The United States Department of Energy (DOE) launches the National Geothermal Data System (NGDS), an online, open-source platform that facilitates discovery and use of subsurface geothermal data for research and energy production: www.geothermaldata.org. This open source platform responds to one of industry’s greatest barriers to geothermal development and deployment: the difficulty in accessing and integrating quantifiable, technical data in digital format. Already, industry is using the free, online tool to model geological features and locate and monitor subsurface reservoirs.
