Story

“Geothermal is an engineering problem..."

CeraPhi’s® mission is to deliver an impact change to carbon reduction, providing a decarbonising baseload 1-2-1 energy transition solution.

Using expertise from years of Oil & Gas production, we are tapping into experience and resources to unlock more than six billion years of energy stored under our feet.

Geothermal energy is everywhere for everyone.

Geothermal Revolution

What is Geothermal?

  • Geothermal is the only true baseload energy.
  • It’s available everywhere and anywhere.
  • 99% of the earth’s volume has temperatures exceeding 1,000 °C making it one giant battery with enough clean renewable energy to last billions of years.

Geothermal is:

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.

Baseload Renewable Energy Transition

Lowest cost, emissions free electricity, anywhere

  • 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
