"Geothermal is the only true baseload renewable energy so a country not capitalising on it would be mad." - The New Zealand Herald
On Tuesday, November 25, 2014, CanGEA released its report on Geothermal in BC. This report presents geothermal as an alternative to the controversial Site C hydro dam on the Peace River. A number of false claims have been made regarding BC's geothermal potential and now CanGEA's Chair and Managing Director, Alison Thompson, will be heading to Vancouver to present the facts. Join her for lunch as she provides the basics on BC's geothermal potential as identified in the CanGEA Resource Estimate Maps. All are welcome! If you have an interest in the environment, renewable energy, or energy in BC it is highly recommended that you attend this event!
Special opportunities for the mining sector. During this event, Alison will also discuss how geothermal heat can contribute to the mining industry, by improving economics and reducing environmental impact. Geothermal fluids are utilized globally in various mineral extraction processes, most significantly, the recovery of rare earth minerals from geothermal brines. This process allows the production of "fair trade metals."
