Superhot rock energy is a form of advanced geothermal energy that uses innovative deep drilling techniques, and has the potential to provide abundant, always available, renewable, cost-competitive, carbon-free energy virtually everywhere on Earth — all with a land-use footprint much smaller than that of other energy sources. 

Our report details the potential for this new energy source, provides an overview of its current status, and lays out the technical and commercial advances necessary to develop, demonstrate, and commercialize it in the 2030s — charting a potential course to “geothermal everywhere.”
