With a push to Net Zero by 2050, green technologies other than wind and solar need to be addressed, considered and developed in a timely manner.  Geothermal is a green energy source which harvests heat directly from the Earth. It can be utilized directly for residential and commercial heating or for electricity generation.  Unlike wind and solar, geothermal is a perfect source of baseload power as it is “always on” since there are no requirements for the sun to shine or the wind to blow.

Originally presented at the CSPG GeoGonvention 2021, the presentation below, GLJ’s John Hirschmiller, Geothermal Team Lead, addresses where geothermal energy is found, how it is extracted and how to evaluate geothermal assets.
