Leadership Engaging regional stakeholders Resources concentrated along the U.S. and Canadian Rocky Mountains and northern plains are rich in diversity and offer a foundation for additional energy solutions. INL engages its expertise with universities state and community leadership to bring together multidisciplinary research partnerships because regional engagement will provide a foundation for developing these resources. REGIONAL Geothermal energy research heats up The U.S. Energy Information Administration projects that geothermal electricity generation could more than quadruple by 2040 increasing to over 67000 gigawatthours enough to power about 6 million American households for a year. Such levels could help California and other states with renewable portfolio standards satisfy their mandated renewable generation requirements. Resource estimates for enhanced geothermal in the 13 Western states amount to 500 gigawatts of power generation with about 47 GW coming from Idaho. 24
