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.
