Notice of Request for Information (RFI) on Identifying Wells of 
Opportunity for Critical Geothermal Field Research Applications

AGENCY: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), 
Department of Energy (DOE).

ACTION: Request for information (RFI).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) invites public comment on 
its Request for Information (RFI) regarding the identification of wells 
of opportunity for critical geothermal field research application. DOE 
is seeking information from the geothermal community about 
underutilized wells in known geothermal resource areas in the United 
States. The goal is to obtain feedback on industry willingness to 
partner with DOE's Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) to test 
downhole tools, technologies, and methodologies that can improve the 
probability of successful geothermal commercialization.

DATES: Responses to the RFI must be received by October 25, 2019.

ADDRESSES: Interested parties are to submit comments electronically to 
[email protected]. Include Wells of Opportunity in the subject 
of the title. The complete RFI document is located at https://eere-exchange.energy.gov/.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions may be addressed to 
[email protected], or Lauren Boyd, 202-287-1854. Further 
instruction can be found in the RFI document posted on EERE Exchange.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of this RFI is to solicit 
feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government 
agencies, and other stakeholders on existing Wells of Opportunity 
(underutilized wells in known geothermal resources) that DOE and 
partners can use for downhole testing of tools, technologies, and 
methodologies. EERE is specifically interested in information from 
stakeholders with available well infrastructure on their willingness to 
participate and allow research and testing for downhole tools, 
technologies, and methods in their well. Additionally, EERE is
