We are proud to announce that Borealis won the Transformation Advocate Award at the Inaugural BC Cleantech Awards hosted by Foresight Cleantech Accelerator Centre! The awards were presented on February 11th, 2020 at Globe 2020 in Vancouver, BC.
A statement by Borealis's CEO and President, Alison Thompson, on this award:
"To have been even considered as a finalist alongside industry giants LNG Canada, FortisBC, and Lafarge Holcim is an honour. Together, we will continue to use our business as a force for good to move Canada toward a healthy and sustainable future. We would like to thank all of our stakeholders who have kept moving us forward, so that we can move industry, technology, and communities forward."
Nowadays, we take heating and cooling conveniences for granted with the simple turn of a thermometer dial for industrial, commercial and residential heating and refrigeration needs.
A material amount of British Columbia’s energy use could be substituted with geothermal heat. Borealis is leading the cleantech utility industry transformation via district heating projects in Valemount and Terrace, industrial cooling solutions for the burgeoning LNG industry near Kitimat with our First Nations joint venture partner, and active participation in British Columbia Utilities Commission hearings that are shaping the way Indigenous Utilities, Municipal Utilities, and Thermal Energy Systems serve communities and industry while supporting the Province’s CleanBC mandate.

Today, Dr. Megan Eyre presented at the New Zealand Geothermal Workshop in Auckland! Her presentation showcased the drone-based technology that BGP is using to explore for geothermal energy in Canada.
BGP is continuously transferring technology to the geothermal space from other industries. This paper speaks to the effectiveness of using drone technology to perform geothermal geophysical surveys, as a component of our Optimized Geothermal and Element (OGE) exploration technology.
Megan won the 2019 Women in Geothermal / Seequent Visibility Scholarship for her role in our research using drone-based technology. 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.
