Join CanGEA's members Alex Sarmiento, Craig Dunn (Borealis GeoPower) and T.M. Gunderson (Enerpro Engineering) for an exciting talk at the Canadian Association of Drilling Engineers (CADE).
Earth contains an incredibly vast amount of thermal energy, locked in water reservoirs the same way hydrocarbons are. This energy can be used in a geothermal power plant to drive a steam turbine, which is able to create electricity for oil & gas facilities, residential, industrial and commercial use. Any leftover heat can also be used in a variety of industrial heating applications like greenhouses, paper, pulp and lumber drying, fruit and meat drying, commercial and industrial heating, city and roads heating, bathing, harvesting of Lithium minerals for manufacturing of rechargeable batteries, and roads and sidewalk heating (just to name a few). By targeting these geothermal reservoirs, we can develop this resource using the same technologies and processes that have been used by the Oil and Gas Energy sector for decades.
When? June 22, 2016
Where? Calgary Petroleum Club - Devonian Room (319 5 Ave. SW) (map)
(11:00am - 12:00pm)

How to finance geothermal projects? Join us for our finance workshop and find out!
Geothermal energy is delivering clean, base-load and low cost electricity in 24 countries as well as heating in 82 countries for fish farms, greenhouses, breweries, and much more! While not yet fully utilized, geothermal energy is an important part of Canada’s energy future, creating new investment and jobs in Canadian communities while also contributing to a cleaner environment for future generations.
CanGEA invites its corporate members to this workshop on how to finance geothermal projects. If you are interested in attending this workshop in Calgary, please pre-register for FREE by using the link below. Final registration and payment for the workshop includes a copy of CanGEA's International Geothermal Policy Mechanisms Best Practices: Identifying the Canadian Gap as pre-workshop reading material.
