According to just about anyone who has studied it, geothermal heat and power alone could fuel our energy hungry economies for centuries — with the low- to zero-emissions output needed to meet climate targets. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, it represents a sustainable, renewable and practically inexhaustible fuel supply that could power the global electric grid many times over.

In searching for the next breakthrough in geothermal energy, Royal Dutch Shell plc came up with a top ten list of what was holding geothermal energy back. As a clean source of baseload power and heat, geothermal has the unique ability to fill the intermittency gap left by those other clean sources of power — wind and solar. But unlike those sources — which have undergone exponential growth — geothermal has failed to launch in a significant way.
