    Geothermal Energy: What's working and where?

    With the expanding electrification of the global economy as well as increasing pressure to decarbonize power, geothermal energy is experiencing a revival. While this technology has a long history of deployment, it remains limited in application with only a fraction of the global geothermal resource being developed. What are the barriers to widespread deployment? What innovations are needed to accelerate its development and deployment in a renewable energy landscape dominated by wind and solar? What new commercial models will arise, and who is best positioned to capture them?
