Energy — Research
Energy resources, like petroleum, coal, uranium and geothermal, all contribute to New Mexico's economy. Since our establishment in 1927, the Bureau has conducted research on energy resources throughout New Mexico. These are some of our active projects.
New Mexico currently utilizes low and intermediate temperature geothermal resources for aquaculture, greenhouses, recreation, district heating, and space heating. In recent years there has been renewed interest in exploring and developing these geothermal resources, and in determining the sustainability of existing resources statewide.
