On December 15, CanGEA delivered our "What About Geothermal in Alberta?" presentation at the Leduc Library. The presentation was free of charge with the goal of increasing public knowledge about geothermal energy and support for the Canadian geothermal energy industry. Post workshop surveys provided positive feedback and CanGEA will continue to improve the presentation. CanGEA is looking to present in Banff in the New Year. More details to follow.

Liz Lappin of E3 Metals Corp, a CanGEA member, was interviewed on ACTia's podcast to discuss petro-lithium extraction in Alberta, using this lithium in large scale electrical grid storage and electric vehicles, and E3's projects. To listen, click here.
A technical feasibility study for Sussex revealed that "installation of a district system could provide Avon Valley Floral the economic advantage to operate 12 months of the year. A district system could also provide an economic advantage to prospective proponents who connect to the district system (additional greenhouses, refrigeration warehouse and or data storage centres etc.). This would create more jobs in the region and additional revenue for the utility provider which could prompt expansion of the district system.“
This information comes from the Town's "Community GHG & Energy Action Plan," accessible here. The slide relating to geothermal energy is available on page 42/slide 43.
B.C Government Releases CleanBC
CleanBC, the province's long term climate plan, was announced today. In the preliminary framework, small scale renewable energy generation is emphasized and geothermal heat is deemed eligible. CleanBC is a positive step forward to meeting Canada's climate goals. CanGEA will provide further updates when available.

An attendee of our "What About Geothermal in Alberta?" Calgary workshop wrote a letter to the Calgary Herald that was published today, which included geothermal energy facts and support for geothermal energy development in Alberta. We are grateful for this attendee's support and are glad to see our efforts are providing immediate results, including public support and increased knowledge.
