The University of Utah emerged as one of two final candidates in a nationwide hunt to develop an underground laboratory tapping ways to harness the power of man-made geothermal reservoirs.
UGS scientists are part of an exciting research team led by the Energy and Geoscience Institute at the University of Utah that will study new techniques for harnessing the Earth’s heat to generate electrical power. Our team will evaluate the establishment of an enhanced underground geothermal project about 10 miles north of Milford, Beaver County. The research is one of five proposals currently funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. Check it out —
