    Data and Analysis During its first 27 months of operation, the power plant logged 18, hours at Projects moving forward from the identification, exploration and exploratory drilling often trade equity for financing. Aimed at making more consistent, timely decisions to cut costs, it forecast a bright future for the industry with an estimated 47 percent of America's million acres of geothermal potential on public land in 12 Western states. Human extraction taps a minute fraction of the natural outflow, often without accelerating it.

    For example, a geothermal heat pump powered by electricity from a combined cycle natural gas plant would produce about as much pollution as a natural gas condensing furnace of the same size. The remainder supported industrial and agricultural applications. BLM acknowledged concerns about undermining free-market forces promoting more leasing -- if you want it, pay for it -- but said there are instances "in which non-competitive leases may be appropriate. It ordered a 90 percent reduction in a backlog of applications and stipulated that BLM auction off requested parcels at least once every two years, a requirement the Interior Department clarified in rule changes made in

This could be reduced to 5 years if all units are operated simultaneously and greater fuel savings are realized. All the while, NEPA looms large over the process, working its way down the chain of command to local district offices, which examine resource management plans to investigate potential impacts to the land and wildlife. There are many more high flow non-thermal springs than geothermal springs. Drilling accounts for over half the costs, and exploration of deep resources entails significant risks.
