Geothermal Visual: Comparing the Geothermal Permitting Process to Other Technologies

The visual below, prepared by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), shows the average length of time for the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review process for geothermal projects as compared to the timelines for average solar and wind development, as well as for oil and gas.

The longer lead time for geothermal projects is something that regulators and energy market planners are only beginning to understand. DOE’s EERE Geothermal Technologies Office and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory have produced an online collection of resources covering energy and bulk transmission projects called the Regulatory and Permitting Information Desktop (RAPID) Toolkit. Click here to access RAPID.
