Euractiv’s special report on Geothermal Energy

In this special report, EURACTIV looks at the latest developments in geothermal technology and the remaining challenges that need to be addressed before it can become a cheap and reliable source of renewable energy.

Euractiv – ‘Always on’: The promise of new geothermal technologies

Euractiv recently published an article on the promise of new geothermal technologies. They suggest that geothermal energy’s ability to provide baseload electricity and flexibility to heating and power systems will be invaluable in moving towards a 100% renewables-based system.

Euractiv – ‘Sun beneath our feet’: The European cities turning to geothermal

Euractiv recently published an article on the growing number of cities in Europe turning to geothermal energy, or as it’s otherwise known, ‘sun beneath our feet.’ Since 2003, Munich has been among European cities pioneering the deployment of geothermal energy.

New York Times – The Energy Transition And The Quest For The Mythical Beast Of Perfection

The 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.

Euractiv – ‘Closed-loop’ technology brings promise of geothermal anywhere

Euractiv recently featured Eavor’s closed-loop technology, the Eavor-Loop™, in an article detailing the promise it holds. In 2019, Eavor completed the prototype of a closed-loop geothermal power plant. This technology, a new generation of Advanced Geothermal Systems (AGS), connects two vertical wells with many horizontal wellbores, creating a closed buried-pipe system.

Euractive – Industry: Geothermal energy requires European policy solutions

Euractiv recently featured an article with Sanjeev Kumar, the Head of Policy at the European Geothermal Energy Council, on the promise of geothermal in Europe, especially during the time of their energy crisis. Geothermal power is a reliable, renewable, and local energy source that offers baseload power generation.

Politico – The Goldilocks effect: the quest for the perfect energy source

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…”

Euractiv – The Next Revolution in Green Energy is Coming from Right Beneath our Feet – John Redfern

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.

Geretstried – Der Standort des deutschen Pilotprojekts von Eavor Technologies

Eavor Deutschland wurde kürzlich in einem Artikel der Zeitschrift ThinkGeoEnergy erwähnt.
“Die kanadische Eavor Technologies treibt ihre Pläne für das Geothermieprojekt in Geretstried voran und plant, die Bohrungen im Jahr 2022 zu starten.”

Energie aus 4500 Metern Tiefe

Geothermie in Gelting kann noch betrieben werden, und Eavor wird das Unternehmen dafür sein.

“Die Technik dafür ist innovativ. Bei Erfolg könnten ganz Geretsried und halb Wolfratshausen mit Fernwärme versorgt werden.”
