GreenFire Energy Demonstration, Coso, CA, USA, 2019
GreenFire Energy develops innovative Advanced Geothermal Systems (AGS) that accelerate the generation of clean, continuous, and reliable geothermal energy. Our AGS is closed-loop technology called GreenFire’s GreenLoop™ (GreenLoop).
GreenLoop technology is a pioneering AGS that incorporates a downbore heat exchanger within a closed-loop system. GreenLoop makes economic power generation feasible across the entire spectrum of geothermal resources, including resources with limited permeability and water that constrain conventional technology. All GreenLoop projects begin with proprietary thermodynamic modeling techniques that accurately estimate power potential and costs and are used to design GreenFire Energy solutions for optimal performance. GreenLoop provides operators and developers the ability to retrofit existing wells, expand existing fields, and develop new geothermal resources quickly and economically. Applications include commercial power generation, direct use projects, and industrial applications.
Widely recognized for its innovative geothermal expertise, GreenFire Energy conducted the world’s first field-scale demonstration of closed-loop geothermal technology and has been granted more international patents and has published more technical papers for closed-loop geothermal technology than any other AGS company. In addition to collaborative research with national laboratories, GreenFire Energy works seamlessly with its global strategic partners – including Baker Hughes, H&P, and Vallourec – to build AGS systems worldwide.
The combination of GreenFire Energy’s GreenLoop technology and asset-leveraged business model results in superior project outcomes. Our business model uses underutilized geothermal resources and infrastructure to lower financial and project risk, shorten implementation and completion times, deliver high ROI, and result in competitive CapEx and OpEx. GreenFire Energy solutions are unsurpassed as the most environmentally sustainable method of grid-scale power generation.
