Geothermal technology with a key part to play in the clean energy transition

With global demand for energy expected to increase by 50% by 2050, it is essential we find a range of energy sources to replace fossil fuels and support the transition to a clean energy future.

Eavor’s revolutionary geothermal technology provides a source of constant, stable energy to complement less reliable renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, and can be used in a broad range of locations all over the world, and has a much smaller footprint than other renewable technologies.

After trialling their prototype system in Alberta over the last three years, they are now embarking on a series of commercial and industrial-sized projects, breaking ground on two projects in Bavaria and New Mexico, which will be the world’s deepest and hottest directional geothermal well ever drilled.

The system absorbs heat via conduction and then brings it to the surface via an underground heat exchanger. The depth of drilling can vary depending on the geological location, reaching depths of up to nine kilometres and temperatures of 300°C.

As a closed loop system, it mitigates many of the issues that have hindered traditional geothermal solutions, and offers an opportunity for countries around the world to develop energy security.

About RE:TV

“At RE:TV, we highlight some of the inspiring innovations and ideas that are emerging in response to the climate and biodiversity crisis. By providing a platform for the growing community of change-makers around the world, we hope to encourage businesses to incorporate climate solutions in their supply chains at the same time as helping to address the increasing anxiety that we all feel about the climate. As our founder put it when RE:TV launched in 2020; “there is real hope, but we’ve got to come together as a world on this.”

RE:TV was announced at the World Economic Forum at Davos in January 2020 by His Majesty King Charles III (then HRH The Prince of Wales) alongside the Sustainable Markets Initiative. Both are inspired by his long-standing commitment to environmental issues.

A remote production team has worked since the summer of 2020 to make more than 70 films with local crews all over the world; exploring a wide range of themes from direct-air carbon capture in British Columbia and sustainable aviation fuel in Illinois to regenerative agriculture in India and plastic waste recycling in Uganda.

RE:TV has now generated over ten million views across its website, social platforms and through distribution partnerships with the likes of Amazon Prime, Bloomberg and Waterbear and is building on these foundations to increase the reach, ambition and impact of the films and social content it produces.”
