Next-generation energy is right below our feet: a geothermal energy discussion panel

Energy Disruptors uploaded a video discussion panel with the leading developers of next-generation geothermal energy to Youtube on November 1. The discussion took place at the Energy Disruptors: Unite Summit 2022.

EDU 2022 took place in Calgary, from September 20 to 22. The discussion panel features Pernilla Wihlborg, CEO of Baseload Power, Ann Robertson-Tait, president of GeothermEx Inc., Srimonto Ghosh, manager of Emerging New Energies Chevron, and John Redfern, CEO of Eavor Technologies Inc.

Hosted by Holly Ransom, the panel analyzed the misconceptions around geothermal energy, the challenges of acquiring investments and capital, and why geothermal is the answer for intermittency issues, climate concerns, and unstable geopolitical landscapes.

John Redfern, of Eavor Technologies, highlighted the importance of partnerships within the energy industry, alongside Srimonto Ghosh of Chevron. Eavor announced investments from Chevron and BP in February of 2021, and both Redfern and Ghosh advocate for the importance of strong relationships between traditional oil and gas and geothermal innovators.
