“60% of California’s North Coast is powered by geothermal energy”
British Columbia deserves a clean, emissions-free, baseload energy source. Geothermal energy is technically feasible in British Columbia, and Canada’s developers have the capabilities to harness this energy. With declining oil prices and a struggling Canadian dollar, technology transfer opportunities have made geothermal power projects more favourable than any other time.
Come learn about the economic, environmental, and social benefits of geothermal power and how they can change British Columbia’s energy landscape. While geothermal energy already delivers clean, base-load and low cost electricity in 25 countries as well as commercial heating in 70 countries, we believe that beautiful British Columbia can also benefit from its geothermal opportunities. Such renewable power and heat that can create new investment and employment opportunities, and contribute to building local sustainable communities across Canada.
Chief Geologist, Craig Dunn, and Anders Kruus (DEEP Corp, Alterra Power & Borealis GeoPower) will be speaking at CanGEA’s event Turn Up the Heat BC to explore the Canadian energy industry’s efforts to develop geothermal energy. Craig will discuss his company’s ground-breaking field work completed this past summer that proved new exploration techniques from other industries to be valuable.
