In 2010, NREL developed Geothermal Prospector, a web-based geographic information system (GIS) application, to support resource assessment and data exploration for the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Geothermal Technologies Office. The Geothermal Prospector tool provides the information needed to allow users to determine locations that are favorable to geothermal energy development. This was in response to the recommendation by the Geothermal Technologies Program Blue Ribbon Panel Recommendations for DOE to focus efforts on accelerating near-term geothermal growth through exploration.
