About Us

An Introductory Message From Our CEO

“In these challenging and uncertain times, climate changes, global pandemic, financial instability, how and where to invest sustainably has become ever more a personal matter, influenced by many factors outside our control. Having had a successful career in the global energy sector and as an Investor and business entrepreneur myself I too faced the same challenge until I discovered Geothermal Energy.

After nearly 30 years in the energy sector I finally realized the reason for my life’s journey, discovering the true potential of the energy beneath our feet, so I decided to do something about it, bringing together the best minds and experts I could find to develop a scalable solution unleashing Geothermal Energy from its ubiquitous state to become our first choice of clean baseload energy within the next 30 years to help meet the 2050 Paris Agreement targets to achieve net zero.”

– Karl Farrow

Geothermal Revolution
What is Geothermal?

Water and/or steam carry geothermal energy to the surface of the earth.

Depending on its characteristics, geothermal energy can be used for heating and cooling purposes or be harnessed to generate clean electricity.

There are different geothermal technologies with distinct levels of maturity.

Technology for direct uses like district heating, geothermal heat pumps, greenhouses, and for other applications are widely used and considered mature.

Technology for electricity generation from hydrothermal reservoirs with naturally high permeability is more than 100 years old and reliable.

Despite the staggering amount of energy is trapped beneath our feet, only 15 GWe of energy is currently produced commercially from Geothermal sources today – equivalent to the daily demand of Wales.

Geothermal - Its Key Benefits

About us
  • Geothermal is a baseload green energy available everywhere
  • The average temperature needed to produce Geothermal energy is >70°C
  • Thermal energy heat of between 30°C and 120°C is enough to supply commercial grade heating and cooling from Geothermal Energy anywhere in the world

 

  • Geothermal is the only renewable energy capable of providing 24/7 baseload capacity anywhere
  • Baseload is the ability to provide continuous energy 24/7 whatever the environmental condition
  • It offers reliability to fill the gap between solar and wind. Solar can’t provide energy in darkness hours and wind energy is affected when the wind doesn’t blow or blows too fast.
  • Geothermal price is stable
  • It provides flexible on and off-grid energy solutions allowing conversion of existing coal and other fossil fuel to empower generation of a fully renewable source
  • It uses existing infrastructure, transmission and distribution systems saving billions of pounds in network modification costs.
  • Geothermal is cost-competitive against other renewable sources
  • Energy produced from Geothermal is more than electricity:
    • Thermal energy for heating and cooling with no losses
  • Heating using electricity from wind or solar uses up to 70% more energy to convert to heat or cooling that results in significant energy efficiency loss pound for pound.

  • Geothermal provides a competitive solution to wind and solar.
  • It can be even cheaper, under the right circumstances. Its main advantage is that is a 24/7 baseload energy providing continuous energy whether the sun shines or the wind blows.
  • As a continuous supply, it can be peaked and turned on and off as needed at any time.
  • Geothermal is an ‘anywhere any time’ energy
  • It can be connected on or off grid to meet specific energy needs for multiple private usages without reliance on expensive transmission infrastructure for:
  • Industrial sites
  • Retail parks
  • Businesses

Geothermal provides the same hot steam vapour that drives coal-fired power plants so it can be used in the transition of these plants, replacing the coal feed stock with steam directly from underground geothermal wells.

  • Geothermal is a solution for a quick transition from fossil fuel power to clean green energy.
  • It replaces the dirty feed stock from coal and removes the need to mine coal, which would have a massive impact on combatting climate change.
  • Retrofitting old coal and gas-fired power plant infrastructure will reduce the carbon footprint by reusing existing infrastructure.
  • Customers’ transition and distribution systems would be in place
