The Energy Department will provide up to $140 million in continued funds for the University of Utah to research and develop geothermal systems over the next five years.

DOE said Thursday it picked an area outside of Milford, Utah, as the location for Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy field laboratory after a three-year process of planning, site characterization and competition.

“Funding efforts toward the next frontier in geothermal energy technologies will help diversify the United States’ domestic energy portfolio, enhance our energy access, and increase our energy security,” said Energy Secretary Rick Perry.

Researchers can use the FORGE facility to create, test and update geothermal systems or engineer manmade  geothermal reservoirs.
