“Generating electricity using the Eavor-Loop™ geothermal system presents lower CO₂ equivalent emissions compared to scenarios that involve solar-PV power plants, which need integrated backup systems to account for their natural intermittency.

The life-cycle emissions for Eavor’s Geretsried, Germany Eavor-Loop™ system were estimated as 11.6 kg of CO₂e emissions per MWh of energy produced. This is, on average, 97% lower compared to a similar generation system in which a solar-PV system has an integrated BESS, a NGT, or both.

An additional advantage of Eavor’s closed-loop geothermal system is that it does not present the inherent intermittency of solar and wind energy, providing a renewable source of baseload and dispatchable electric power.”
