ability to conduct research on United States (US) solid-fuel, conventional, and geothermal energy resources at the State level and assist in dissemination of results to the US public through USGS provision of technical expertise, scientific equipment and facilities otherwise not available to the States.

Legal authority for this program is provided under 43 USC 36d and 30 USC208- 1. Funded work includes the generation of stratigraphic, geochemical, geotechnical and Geographic Information System (GIS) data on solid-fuel, conventional, and geothermal energy resources.

Assessment of energy resources at the State level serves the public purpose of wise resource stewardship.

Reports resulting from the agreements, in many cases co-authored by USGS staff, are disseminated to the public through multiple avenues, the most prominent being USGS National Coal Resources Data System (NCRDS) national databases and ERP energy assessment projects that are regional and national in scope.

Joint recipient and USGS research on coal and other solid-fuel, conventional, and geothermal energy is conducted within the context of environmental concerns and economic framework.

Results of energy resource assessments and energy-derived environmental impact assessments in the US assist in formulation of public policy and sound use of energy resources by industry.
