The Globe and Mail recently published an article featuring western Canada’s geothermal push, and the clean energy projects already underway.
Sara Hastings-Simon, an assistant professor at the University of Calgary says that geothermal was left behind when the first round of renewable energies was developed. It was further from commercialization than wind or solar, and less competitive. She says it’s worthwhile to start building the geothermal resource as the focus on decarbonizing Canada’s power grid grows.
he New York Times recently published an article featuring Eavor Technologies Inc. and their closed-loop geothermal technology. They refer to the concept as die eierlegende wollmilchsau, a German phrase meaning the egg-laying wool-milk pig. This mythical creature is said to meet all human needs for food, drink, and fiber simultaneously. Closed-loop geothermal is the energy world’s egg-laying wool-milk pig with its ability to be flexible, reliable, renewable, affordable, and dispatchable.
The Goldilocks effect: the quest for the perfect energy source. “Mmm… This bowl replaces high-carbon non-renewable fossil fuel supplies with a clean, locally sourced, globally available, low-cost, socially acceptable, grid-stabilizing, zero-emission, load-following, resilient/reliable energy source… It’s juuust right…”
The International Geothermal Association (IGA) welcomed Eavor™ as a new corporate club member.
Euractiv recently featured an article where the President and CEO, John Redfern, of the clean energy company Eavor™ talked about the bold transformation needed to revolutionize technology. Redfern points out the shortcomings of wind and solar power due to their inability to work on calm or cloudy days. He suggests there is a better way, a magic battery right beneath our feet.
