Department of Energy.]. deal with permitting geothermal district heating and cooling projects which raise complex utility issues.4 This brief introduction will, however, give the reader a better basic understanding of the geothermal permitting process at the federal, state, and local levels, and in Indian Country.
Geothermal EnergyReplenished by heat sources deep in the Earth, geothermal energy is a renewable resource that generates electricity with minimal carbon emissions. It is an abundant resource, especially in the West, where the BLM has authority to manage geothermal leasing on approximately million acres of public lands (including million acres of U.S.
Forest Service. Federal lands are leased for geothermal development. To date there has been no commercial production from Federal leases. Leasing and permitting delays are not in themselves the only or even the primary reasons for the slow pace of geothermal development.
Estimates indicate that the Federal Government owns approximately 55 percent of the country's total geothermal resources. Geothermal Lease. In order to obtain federal geothermal mineral rights, developers must obtain a Geothermal Lease from the BLM. A Geothermal Lease conveys the exclusive right to drill for, extract, produce, remove, utilize, sell, and dispose of all geothermal resources in the lands subject to the lease.
Lease for Geothermal Resources (Form Lease confers right to explore for, drill, produce and utilize geothermal resources on federal lands with limitations. Subsequent permits required prior to any surface disturbing activities.

The Federal Geothermal Steam Act of Other western states followed suit over the years with the passage of their own geothermal acts – to establish a legal framework for leasing, exploration and development of geothermal resources – both for electrical power generation and direct-use.
The California Act of made the first attempt at. More appropriate policies at the federal and state level could foster technology development and increased investment by the private sector, spurring geothermal resource development.
Opportunities to improve and expand geothermal power policy include: • Streamlining and updating federal policies governing geothermal leasing, permitting, and.
Geothermal leasing has made the federal government $76 million sincebut that amount pales in comparison with what the more competitive oil and gas process yields annually. Geothermal energy - Geothermal energy - Environmental effects and economic costs: The environmental effects of geothermal development and power generation include the changes in land use associated with exploration and plant construction, noise and sight pollution, the discharge of water and gases, the production of foul odours, and soil subsidence.

being mineral in character. In their Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for Geothermal Leasing, they state: "The geothermal lease is for the heat in the federal mineral estate.
Unless specifically owned in fee, the fluid part of the resource falls under state laws. Therefore, the amounts of fluid that can be extracted. The tremendous growth in the U.S. solar industry is helping to pave the way to a cleaner, more sustainable energy future.
Over the past few years, the cost of a solar energy system has dropped significantly -- helping to give more American families and business access to affordable, clean energy. Through a portfolio of R&D efforts, the Energy Department remains committed to leveraging America.Demand for both electrical power and direct-use from Federal geothermal resources is expected to increase.
