Google And Geothermal Energy Projects

To reach 24/7 (carbon-free energy), we also need to go beyond wind and solar, and tap into sources of on-demand clean energy like geothermal. Geothermal uses the consistent heat from the earth to generate electricity, but it’s not widely used today, and we want to change that.

I’m excited to announce that we are partnering to develop a next-generation geothermal power project. This will connect to the grid, serving our Nevada data centers, starting next year. We believe our cloud AI, combined with the partners’ expertise in fiber optic sensing and novel techniques can unlock flexible geothermal power in a broad range of new places.

Investments like these are needed to get to 24/7 carbon-free energy, and it’s happening right here in Mountain View, too. We are building our new campus to the highest sustainability standards. When completed, these buildings will feature first-of-its-kind, dragonscale solar skin equipped with 90,000 silver solar panels and the capacity to generate nearly seven megawatts. They will house the largest geothermal pile system in North America, helping to heat the buildings in the winter and cool them in the summer. Sustainability is one of the defining challenges of our time, and advances in computer science and AI have a huge role to play in meeting it.
