White paper: Rapid geothermal district heating assessments in rural USA

In 2019, the US Department of Energy revealed GeoVision. This study found that investment in district heating can push installations to 17,500 systems by 2050.

How to rapidly design these heat networks for development? One of the most difficult of these locations to develop are the sparsely populated towns, adjacent to low-temperature geothermal hot springs. In this paper, Nicholas Fry took on the rural challenge at a residential demonstration site in Helena, Montana.
