Liability to Electricity - BC Foothills Geothermal Energy

CanGEA - the Canadian Geothermal Energy Association - is a non-profit association encouraging research, exploration and development of high temperature geothermal energy resources in Canada. Geothermal energy is a renewable, reliable source of electricity and heat. Geothermal power sources produce long term revenues with no fuel costs and no emissions. Thus, the purpose of this project is to investigate the possibility of generating environmentally-friendly electricity from abandoned gas and oil wells in the Canadian Foothills in eastern BC. Depth, volume flow and temperature of water in these wells are some basic elements to be considered as potential geothermal resources for “green electricity”.
