Alberta's depth of knowledge and experience in the oil and gas industry has the potential to facilitate the growth and development of another, more obscure industry - geothermal. Alexander Richter of ThinkGeoEnergy discusses this potential in his article entitled "Pembina: The missing pieces in the geothermal puzzle in Alberta/Canada." The article also brings up Borealis GeoPower's recent deal with Climeon.
In recent years, there has been a strong notion in Canada that Alberta needs to diversify its economy, perhaps geothermal energy could help provide a solution to that problem.
Borealis GeoPower is headquartered in Moh’kins’tsis, the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) name for the place we now call Calgary, located in the Treaty 7 region and the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (including the Siksika, Piikani and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw and Wesley First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
BOREALIS GEOPOWER has operations on the traditional, unceded territory of the people of the kitselas First Nation. the kitselas people are part of the larger tsimshian nation whose traditional language is sm'algyax. kitselas means "people of the canyon" in sm'algyax. the kitselas First Nation has been archaeologically documented to occupy the kitselas canyon, east of terrace (british columbia) on the skeena river, for at least 5000 years.
We are grateful to the past, present and future stewards of this land.
