Our Chair, Tim Thompson, represented BGP and our KGI project at the 2019 Indigenous Clean Energy Gathering in Ottawa, this week.
This event is invite-only and we are proud to have participated in this event that empowers Indigenous clean energy leadership and collaboration!
We are very proud to announce that Dr. Megan Eyre, Head of Geophysics at BGP, is the 2019 @WING_geothermal / @Seequentglobal Visibility Scholarship winner for her role in BGP’s research on drone-based geothermal exploration.
Once Megan arrived at BGP, she performed the magnetic interpretation of the drone-survey data. Megan also went into the field to ground-truth the anomalies. BGP would like to thank everyone involved in the drone-based research and exploration campaign for their hard work and dedication.
As a Certified B Corporation, BGP hopes to serve as a model of gender equality to businesses around the world.

Project leader and BGP CEO Alison Thompson, was amongst the 120 past and incoming Clean50 Honourees who met on Thursday October 3rd at the “Clean50 Summit 9.0” in Toronto, and spent a day amongst peers and colleagues tackling critical sustainability challenges facing Canada” and vying for the title of “Top Sustainability Project of the Year”.
Canada’s Clean50 Top Project Awards are amongst the awards announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Canada’s Clean50 organization, to recognize the 20 best sustainability oriented projects completed in Canada over the prior two years. Projects are chosen based on the four “I”s criteria: Impactful, Innovative, Inspiring and can readily be Imitated.
Delta’s criteria in determining Project awards is to carefully consider a combination of actual measurable impact, demonstrated innovation, and the project’s ability to inspire others to imitate it – and Kitselas Geothermal Inc.'s geothermal district energy project is a terrific example.
The cumulative accomplishments of Canada’s Clean50 Top Projects in reducing and avoiding GHGs over the past 2 years adds up to a very big number. All Canadians should be grateful for the leadership these organizations have shown in the projects they have completed.
