Online Session

23 May 2023 - 15:00-16:00 UK time

This is the first in a new series of sessions organised in collaboration with the Heat Academy. The aim is to increase the awareness of the opportunities in sourcing fully sustainable heat from the underground.

 

Soil and water below ground contain a vast reservoir of thermal energy. Geothermal heating systems recover this energy and convert it to heat that can be utilized in greenhouses and other buildings. The greenhouse sector is already taking steps toward using renewable energy, with several geothermal energy plants being developed in recent years.

At this session we will highlight the opportunities in applying deep geothermal in the agricultural sector thereby avoiding costs and risks related to fossil fuels. You will learn more about the technologies and business models available to make this work, as well as strategies for bringing a project from objectives to operations.

5th May

In June 2022,  this webinar series was launched aimed at assessing the potential and outlook for geothermal energy across the Americas.

Geothermal opportunities across the Americas come in many forms. These include areas with high heat-flows created by the Pacific ‘ring of fire,’ the potential repurposing of oil & gas wells to extract heat from millions of onshore wells and shallow low grade (low enthalpy) heat available everywhere.

As we head into a world of decarbonization and electrification, geothermal is ideal base load heat and power for the Net Zero challenge. The Western Hemisphere is richly endowed with suitable geology, skilled engineers, and energy infrastructure.

The contours of the global energy transition underscore the need for a wide range of sustainable energy sources and critical minerals across several segments of the energy sector. As we conclude the series, we will delve deeper into the global energy transition’s widespread implications for public policy and investment related to geothermal development.
