Super-hot Geothermal

Superhot rock energy can be produced from natural or engineered reservoirs that maintain supercritical conditions in the subsurface. Proposed completion methods and technologies that could unlock hydrothermal or petrothermal superhot geothermal plays are conventional, engineered, closed loop geothermal, and hybrid. These technologies each play to different strengths, and, with adequate global investment, they offer innovative ways to extract high-energy-density, low-carbon, always available energy. By driving down costs and making large-scale geothermal power available nearly anywhere, Superhot Rock energy has the potential to disrupt and revolutionize the energy system.
