Report: California Geothermal Permitting Guide


The Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) Program supports public interest energy research and development that will help improve the quality of life in California by bringing environmentally safe, affordable, and reliable energy services and products to the marketplace. The PIER Program, managed by the California Energy Commission (Energy Commission) conducts public interest research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) projects to benefit the electricity and natural gas ratepayers in California. The PIER Program strives to conduct the most promising public interest energy research by partnering with RD&D organizations, including individuals, businesses, utilities, and public or private research institutions. PIER funding efforts are focused on the following RD&D program areas:

  • Buildings End-Use Energy Efficiency
  • Industrial/Agricultural/Water End-Use Energy Efficiency
  • Renewable Energy Technologies
  • Environmentally Preferred Advanced Generation
  • Energy-Related Environmental Research
  • Energy Systems Integration
  • Transportation
