CGS maps geothermal hot spots

The Colorado Geological Survey has published two new maps of Colorado’s geothermal resources which may one day be used to help the state diversify its renewable energy generation portfolio.
One of the maps shows the state’s geothermal gradient, or the rate at which temperature increases underground. The second plots the location of inactive or abandoned oil and gas wells located near promising geothermal resources, wells which might be repurposed for electrical generation.
