The heat pump at the highest altitude: geothermal air-conditioning at 3,600 metres

The heat pump at the highest altitude: geothermal air-conditioning at 3,600 metres

The educational institution Liceo Granaderos de Putre in the commune of Putre in Chile will be heated with geothermal energy through a project led by the Centro de Excelencia Geotérmica Los Andes (CEGA) and financed by the Regional Government of Arica and Panicota. The project is considered the highest altitude at which a geothermal heat pump has been installed: 3,600 metres above sea level. The...

The future of Internet connectivity, volcanic geothermal energy?

The future of Internet connectivity, volcanic geothermal energy?

The future of Internet connectivity is being shaped by innovative technologies and unconventional energy sources. One such source is volcanic geothermal energy, a largely untapped resource with the potential to revolutionize the way we power our digital world. The use of volcanic geothermal energy as a power source for Internet connectivity is a novel concept that is currently being explored by researchers and scientists around...

Geothermal brine sources to build advanced lithium batteries

Geothermal brine sources to build advanced lithium batteries

The US Department of Energy (DoE) has announced nearly $11 million in grants for 10 projects (in nine states) that will advance innovative technologies to extract and convert battery-grade lithium from geothermal brine sources. “The direct extraction of lithium from geothermal brines represents an opportunity to produce lithium hydroxide in the country, the form of lithium used for advanced batteries, in an efficient and environmentally...

QUESTIONNAIRE: GEOTHERMIA in Spain needs you!

QUESTIONNAIRE: GEOTHERMIA in Spain needs you!

A questionnaire has been developed to give a voice to as many actors in the sector as possible, regardless of their nature (private or public) and their field of work (shallow or deep geothermal). The aim is to provide as much and as good information as possible to the consultants to enable them to carry out a good analysis of the geothermal sector As part...

UK brings back deep geothermal energy after four decades of hiatus

UK brings back deep geothermal energy after four decades of hiatus

After almost 40 years of hiatus, deep geothermal energy is making a comeback in the UK, thanks to the Eden Project in Cornwall, a botanical and ecosystem diversity resort in south-west England. This resort, dominated by two huge geodesic domes next to each other and home to thousands of plant species, will use the hot water reservoirs on which it sits, almost 5 kilometres underground,...

Abandoned coal mines: the gold mines of geothermal energy

Abandoned coal mines: the gold mines of geothermal energy

In the U.S., nearly $500 million from the Inflation and Infrastructure Reduction Act would go to clean energy projects in former coal mines. When a coal mine ceases to operate, it usually fills with water. At a certain depth, this water is heated by the heat of the Earth’s interior. By drilling boreholes, this heat can be extracted from the mines and transferred to buildings and...

The energy that lies beneath our feet

The energy that lies beneath our feet

Coinciding with the celebration of Earth Day on 22nd April, at Geoplat we have decided to highlight, once again, geothermal energy; the renewable energy that takes advantage of the heat emanating from the Earth’s core to the Earth’s crust. This makes it clean, efficient and the only renewable energy that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our current energy model is...
