DeSmog Canada - This is Geothermal
Carol Linnitt from DeSmog Canada has produced a great video showcasing Iceland’s impressive and innovative use of geothermal resources during the annual Iceland Geothermal Conference in Reykjavik. DeSmog provides an exciting look into what the future holds for geothermal energy production in Canada by showcasing the outstanding capacity of the Hellisheidi power plant, which has an installed capacity of approx. 300 MWe and 150MWth.
The video also includes interviews with the Geological Survey of Canada's (GSC) Steven Grasby, one of the leading researchers of geothermal energy in Canada, and CanGEA’s very own Alison Thompson commenting on the enormous potential and added value of geothermal energy in Canada across a whole spectrum of electrical and thermal applications.
To cap off the video is an interview with a local farmer who has for generations been using a geothermal conduit located in the core of the city to heat greenhouses to provide fresh produce all year round.
