GreenFire Energy Demonstration, Coso, CA, USA, 2019
GreenFire Energy® develops and deploys its GreenLoop™ technology to significantly expand access to geothermal energy for economic power generation and industrial applications. GreenLoop technology harvests previously inaccessible geothermal energy for transport to the earth’s surface. GreenLoop’s innovative, closed-loop solutions extract renewable energy from the hot dry rock regions that contain most geothermal heat and from unproductive hydrothermal wells. The abundant energy can generate continuous clean power and precisely supply heat and pressure for industrial applications such as mineral extraction. GreenLoop technology includes advanced, proprietary thermodynamic models that are essential for accurate resource assessment and optimal project design.
GreenLoop precisely delivers cost competitive, continuous, flexible geothermal energy with unrivaled environmental advantages. GreenLoop’s versatile closed-loop well designs can be applied to existing wells, new multi-well projects, and industrial applications. The GreenLoop Well Retrofit Solution can produce power from non-productive geothermal or oil and gas wells and provide thermal energy for special high-value industrial applications. The Field Scale Solution can boost production from existing geothermal projects or be used for new projects in regions where conventional technology cannot operate.
GreenLoop technology was successfully demonstrated at the Coso geothermal field in Coso, California, USA in 2019. GreenLoop technology is the result of years of research conducted in concert with U.S. National Laboratories, major universities, and eminent experts in multiple scientific disciplines in conjunction with grants from the U.S. Department of Energy and the California Energy Commission. GreenFire Energy is headquartered in Emeryville, California, USA. For more information visit www.greenfireenergy.com.
