Millimeter-Wave Technology Demonstration for Geothermal Direct Energy Drilling
Project Innovation + Advantages:
Successful completion of project objectives will advance the technological maturity of unique high-power MMW energy physics and engineering needed for geothermal energy mining in very deep, high pressure subterranean environments.
Just 0.1% of the heat content of Earth could supply humanity’s total energy needs for 2 million years. Accordingly, minor extraction of the energy available via geothermal energy could provide substantial contributions to U.S. energy needs long-term.
