The global enhanced geothermal system market size was valued at $2.0 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $3.3 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2023 to 2032.
An enhanced geothermal system (EGS) is a geothermal energy technology that generates energy by using heat from the Earth’s core. EGS produces an artificial geothermal reservoir by injecting water into hot, dry rock formations deep beneath the Earth’s crust. Afterward, the water gets heated by the adjacent rocks and transported back to the surface where it condenses into steam, causing turbines to produce electricity. EGS expands the potential for geothermal energy production by enabling geothermal resources in areas where conventional natural reservoirs are absent or insufficient.
The rise in demand for clean energy drives the growth of the enhanced geothermal system market. There is growing agreement that switching from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources is necessary as the world faces greater environmental concerns. A potential and sustainable alternative to address this demand emerged by using EGS. EGS is an excellent choice for governments and organizations committed to minimize their environmental impact as it generates power with an extremely low carbon footprint. Furthermore, geothermal energy offers a steady and dependable energy supply, as compared to other renewable energy sources like wind and solar.
It is an ideal choice to address baseload energy requirements due to its reliability. EGS is a domestic energy source that is abundant and improves energy security by lowering reliance on imported fossil fuels. This dependability becomes more crucial as nations try to protect themselves from disruptions in the energy supply and geopolitical crises. In addition, the development of sustainable energy technologies, such as EGS, is being encouraged by many governments across the world through subsidies, tax breaks, and supportive regulation. EGS projects become financially viable due to these incentives, which also promote investment. Owing to these excellent advantages of geothermal energy as a clean energy source, the demand for enhanced geothermal system market will boost significantly during the forecast period.
High consumption of electricity is another factor that drives the growth of the enhanced geothermal system market. The need for electricity grows globally as populations expand and industrialization continues to move forward. EGS may contribute to reducing this rise in energy consumption by offering a steady and dependable source of electricity. EGS is a valuable source of base load power as it may produce electricity reliably and continuously the entire day. This is crucial to satisfy the ongoing energy requirements of buildings, companies, and industries.
A reliable power source is necessary for an electricity grid’s stability and to avoid disruptions. EGS helps maintain the balance between supply and demand by providing a steady and predictable source of electricity, which adds to the stability of the grid. Moreover, many nations and regions have established challenging goals to cut carbon emissions and switch to better energy sources. To comply with these requirements, high electricity usage makes it necessary to employ renewable energy solutions like EGS. In addition, high electricity demand is frequently correlated with higher greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of fossil fuels for energy. EGS helps to lower these emissions and support environmental objectives. Owing to these factors, the rise in the demand for electricity will stimulate the growth of the enhanced geothermal system market.
The market expansion of EGS is significantly restrained by the high investment cost associated with these systems. EGS is a promising renewable energy technology that extracts heat from deep under the earth’s crust, but its development and implementation require significant initial expenditures. The large expenditure needed for EGS projects is mostly attributed to the costs associated with drilling and reservoir stimulation. EGS systems involve the drilling of deep wells many kilometers deep into the Earth’s crust. Such depths require specialized equipment and highly qualified workers, that makes the drilling process expensive. Furthermore, to build or improve the permeability of the geothermal reservoir, reservoir stimulation methods like hydraulic fracturing are frequently required. These procedures require financial resources, that raises the project’s ultimate cost.
Costs associated with grid integration and infrastructure construction contribute to the high initial investment. Heat exchangers, power plants, and transmission lines are all part of the complex power generation infrastructure needed for EGS projects. The EGS market may be inefficient and more expensive due to a lack of standard procedures and established technologies. EGS is still in the developmental stages in contrast to established energy technologies, and hence, every project may require a diverse set of engineering solutions. Investors may be further burdened by a rise in design and engineering expenses due to the lack of standards. Owing to these factors, the high investment cost hampers the growth of the enhanced geothermal system market.
The enhanced geothermal system market has a considerable potential opportunity due to the increase in residential and commercial infrastructure. EGS, a dependable and sustainable source of clean energy, may be crucial in supplying these sectors’ rising energy needs. The need for electricity to power residences and companies increased as urbanization and population growth continued. EGS is expected to be a reliable and baseload source of renewable energy. Geothermal energy may run continuously, unlike some other intermittent renewable energy sources like solar and wind, that assures a steady and dependable power supply for homes and businesses. This dependability is crucial for vital infrastructure, such as hospitals and data centers, where uninterrupted power is required.
Green building techniques have grown more common as the emphasis on sustainability and lowering carbon emissions grows. Many organizations and governments are establishing challenging sustainability goals, such as carbon neutrality. EGS is a great option for powering eco-friendly structures and developments as it provides electricity with minimal in the way of greenhouse gas emissions, which is in line with these objectives. Owing to these factors, the surge in the residential and commercial infrastructural development created an excellent growth opportunity for the markets’ expansion.
