The article reports that Google.org, an arm of Google Inc., has declared that it will invest enhanced geothermal systems (EGS), an energy technology for $10.25 million. The company will also fund for the research in geothermal resource mapping. EGS will further widen the potential of geothermal energy because it will not only rely on finding sites of steam and hot water like the traditional geothermal approach does.
