GreenFire Energy, U.S. Navy, and the Defense Innovation Unit Forge Path for Advanced Geothermal Energy at Naval Air Facility

Project is part of the Department of Defense’s strategic pursuit for resilient and secure carbon free energy; enhancing energy security for installations


GreenFire Energy Inc. announced that it has been awarded an agreement to support a geothermal initiative at Naval Air Facility El Centro in California. The  project will begin by evaluating the potential to implement GreenFire’s GreenLoop® (“GreenLoop”) technology to generate energy independent from the grid during external power disruptions. This initiative is part of  the Department of Defense’s strategic pursuit for resilient and secure carbon free energy and its interest to leverage innovative commercial technologies that could significantly benefit military operations.

GreenFire Energy has developed a versatile, closed-loop advanced geothermal system (AGS) called GreenLoop. The company’s expert geothermal team delivers GreenLoop solutions that assure the availability of reliable, resilient, and scalable geothermal energy for a wide range of applications. The versatility of GreenLoop technology enables the creation of tailored solutions for energy-intensive organizations seeking energy assurance by eliminating reliance on grid power distribution. GreenLoop solutions offer a stable and predictable cost of energy while providing a variable mix of power and direct use heating and cooling.

“GreenFire Energy is honored to be selected. Our patented GreenLoop technology has the versatility to generate geothermal energy without reliance on grid power. By integrating advanced geothermal technology within its energy portfolio, the Naval Air Facility El Centro is not only poised to achieve unparalleled energy security but also to set a benchmark for sustainable military practices worldwide,” said Steven Brown, President, GreenFire Energy Inc.
